As a volunteer with the Recreation and Travel program you will be supporting young adults with disabilities to actively participate in a range of fun and social activities on weekends. Activities will include going out for a meal, attending musical theatre or just hanging out having fun. We also go on weekend camps which supports our participants to increase their social independence and daily living skills away from their normal environment. It also establishes friendships along the way which is a great experience.

People from non-English speaking backgrounds, Indigenous Australians, or people who have a disability are encouraged to apply. We are an equal opportunity employer - Your Vision is Our Vision - whatever it takes.
