Why Volunteer?

Volunteer involvement is a two-way relationship, providing an opportunity for Council to achieve their goals and volunteers an opportunity to provide their skills, expertise that enable Council to pursue activities that benefit our community.  Volunteering can also be a way to develop skills and potential pathways to employment. 

Volunteers are involved in many different roles for Prospect; some examples include serving meals at the community lunch, assisting staff to facilitate groups/programs, administration, advisory committees, assisting with transport and much more. There are many opportunities that volunteers can be involved in.
