About this opportunity
The On Water Volunteer will work with the Community, Schools, People with Disabilities to facilitate our mission of “Making a Difference in People’s lives”.
The primary purpose of our volunteers is to ensure that the young people enjoy their on water experience and make them feel amazing.
Volunteers should have excellent people skills relate well to young people, have some experience with people with disabilities and should be motivated and engaging. Whilst no prior sailing experience is necessary, volunteers need to enjoy on water experience and a good sense of balance is highly desirable. Volunteers will assist staff, carers and clients being mindful of safety at all times.
• Friendly, courteous and personable when dealing with clients
• Dependable and punctual
• Self-directed, willing to take initiative when necessary
• Respectful and ability to maintain confidentiality
• Sailing skills are desirable but not a requirement.
Volunteers will require a Working With Children Check (free for volunteers). A membership fee of $25 is required to cover, training and administrative costs.
