Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities at the EMC

Are you looking for an opportunity to support your community? We currently have two unique volunteer opportunities; for our weekly arts and crafts session and for our fortnightly computer club.

Arts & Crafts

Each Friday, we set up our arts and crafts table for any guests who feel like getting creative. We have basic supplies such as paint brushes, paint, beading materials and a range of other miscellaneous supplies for art projects. We can also source free or cheap supplies needed for specific art or craft activities.

We need a volunteer who can demonstrate quick, simple, low-cost art projects for our guests. We don’t want to limit our arts and crafts sessions to only the artistically talented, we need fun, easy projects that anyone can do.

We have limited storage space so things like pottery aren’t really an option.


Our arts and crafts sessions are held every Friday between 9am and 2pm with a volunteer helper welcome to come along for an hour or more during these hours.

Computer Club

Our computer club is an activity for guests who want to learn and build up basic computer skills. Previously, guests have how to create an email account, send and receive emails, browse the internet and use Google to find information. We have desktop computers as well as tablets available.

We’re seeking a volunteer who can help guide the computer club every second session.


Our computer club is held fortnightly on Thursdays from 10am to 12pm. We have someone who comes in every second fortnight, so we need a volunteer who can help out on the alternate fortnights.

Can you lend a hand?
