Would you like to contribute meaningfully to the community?
Warragul Community House prides itself in being a safe, friendly, accepting work environment that values each and every person coming into the House, be it participants for a course, clients, stakeholders, staff and volunteers.
Our volunteers are crucial to our core business; in turn, they get the opportunity to grow their skills and develop their workplace expertise. Our volunteers help manage the office, coordinate student enrolments, run activities, keep the house looking delightful, and even serve on our Committee of Governance. In a million ways both large and small, our volunteers support students and staff in the House on a daily basis. We couldn’t function without them!
