GIVE A LITTLE, CHANGE A LOT
Volunteers from all walks of life and professions generously donate their time and expertise to further Yalari’s work and to help our students be the best they can be.
Yalari volunteers assist across many areas of the organisation, including contributions in the following areas:
- Assisting with the operation and coordination of our fundraising dinners
- Tutoring Yalari students
- Transporting Yalari students
- Hosting student events
- Administration projects, particularly in the Yalari office
- Sourcing donations for auction prizes
- Assisting at camps
- Project work
We continue to work to ensure that both Yalari and our volunteers mutually benefit from the involvement of volunteering. We are constantly looking for new ways to engage and involve our volunteers, so they can further enrich and support our program while providing a relevant and engaging experience for them.
YALARI VOLUNTEER REFLECTIONS
“I like helping our the kids who are finding the experience a little scary at first; Looking out for them and giving them my insight, I believe helps and prepares them for boarding school.” – Nelson Foster, Yalari alumnus
“By helping out in a small way it gives our Indigenous youth a step up in education.”
“I believe that the only way forward to enable Indigenous and non Indigenous communities to share an even footing on all measures, is through education of the future generation.”
“Nice to give something back and give people a hand up, not a hand out.”
“The whole program appeals to my sense of doing something positive for the country and being part of a solution rather than complaining about the problem.”
“To repay part of the generous contribution Yalari has made to ensure our Grand-daughter received a great education and furthered her studies at University.”
“Strong belief in the mission of the charity and have seen the benefits and opportunities provided first-hand.”
