Youth Program Volunteer – Wednesday afternoons

Are you interested in working with teenagers with a disability in a community group environment?

Our Prairiewood Centre is looking for a number of volunteers to assist our Health and Wellbeing team in facilitating group activities and supporting the adolescents in our community based Leisure Links program.

Our Leisure Links program aims to engage young adolescents in our community with energy and support, to enable them to gain independence and confidence. The program includes engaging with the clients on leisure outings for example: to bowling, the local Mall, but also in dancing, cooking and arts and crafts.

This program runs on a term by term basis during the NSW school calendar term. The group runs every Wednesday from 4pm – 6pm. Dates for the next term start on 19 July – 13 September 2017.

This program currently has approximately 15-20 participants, aged between 14 and 24 years of age with a range of disabilities. Each group will be supported by our therapists and support workers but we are also looking for enthusiastic volunteers to assist please.

Our mission at the Cerebral Palsy Alliance is to build futures for people with cerebral palsy. If you feel this role could suit you, you would definitely be helping us with our mission, and you would definitely be contributing to our organisation’s objectives.

This volunteer role could suit a student studying community service, disability, or a therapy discipline. However this role would suit any age group that would like to give back to the local community.
