Brighter Future Program

Our ‘Making brighter futures’ volunteer program is available for those who want to gain experience and training in these areas:

South West Community Services runs 95% by volunteers. These volunteers come from all walks of life all over melbourne. Some are long-term unemployed, some are new arrivals who want to gain some practical skills in a given area and some simply just want to gain extra skills.

We have found our volunteers have enjoyed the experience. We have also found that volunteers have gained more than experience and training,; because they are in a supportive, friendly atmosphere, they feel more valued, build confidence in themselves and therefore gain employment quicker and achieve greater things.  We have had many proven cases where people have tried to find jobs for many months, even years but have been unsuccessful but from volunteering with us have gain skills but also the confidence to secure employment.

If you want to be a part of this program to gain skills and more phone: 8742 4071.
