Volunteering at Warrah

Dec 4, 2023 | News

At Warrah, the spirit of volunteering has returned with enthusiasm, creating a positive effect that extends across all our services.

In 2023 we initiated a dedicated volunteering program, supported by our membership to the Centre for Volunteering, to enhance the lives of individuals living with disabilities. This program has grown steadily, and we have ambitious plans for further expansion in the coming year, including the recruitment of a Volunteer Coordinator to oversee this transformative process.

Warrah’s growing volunteer program opens its doors to individuals, local schools, corporations, and community organisations, all eager to make a meaningful contribution.

We were delighted to welcome enthusiastic student volunteers from local schools such as Pacific Hills Christian School, Redfield College, and Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School. Corporate organisations like Deloitte and cherished partners such as the Master Weavers’ Guild and Dural Men’s Shed who have all generously offered their support, and actively engaged in our mission to create positive change.

This year, we were thrilled to reintroduce the international exchange program through the “Friends of Waldorf.” We welcomed three remarkable German volunteers, each bringing a global perspective and invaluable support to our school students and the broader Warrah community.

One of our volunteers, 18-year-old Lena, shared her experience: “I volunteer with students of all ages, from kindergarten through high school. I help with art projects, assist in the classroom, and even contribute to gardening, weaving, woodwork, and cooking. I am learning so much about education, culture, and myself. I do miss my family and friends from time to time, but I love exploring this amazing country in my spare time. Even the creepy crawlies aren’t enough to stop me”.

Volunteering at Warrah has become a journey of giving and growth, with the efforts of volunteers from various backgrounds collectively creating a positive, lasting impact within our vibrant community.

We are currently seeking volunteers to assist in several areas: music and instrument playing, fine Arts, farming, gardening, general maintenance, and administration.
