For four years Rebecca has been part of the Volunteer Operations Centre, assisting with the administration duties that underpin the Learning for Life program.
She joined to gain work experience while completing a Certificate 4 in Community Services Work. Despite a busy schedule with two young children, study, work and another volunteer role, Rebecca is passionate about making a difference in the lives of other Australians and makes time to continue volunteering with us.
“My role helps to free up the Learning for Life Coordinators so they can assist families better, rather than being bogged down with administration tasks like checking documents and reports, checking attendance and finding out if documents have been sent in or not,” she says.
“I have also tried my hand at mentoring, leadership and talking directly to families. I’ve stepped outside my comfort zone to grow many of my skills. This helped me complete my TAFE studies and go on to study at university."
