Volunteer for Knox is jointly governed through a partnership between the five Knox Neighbourhood Houses – Coonara Community House, The Basin Community House, Rowville Neighbourhood Learning Centre, Mountain District Learning Centre and Orana Neighbourhood House. The Volunteer Resource Centre is funded by Knox City Council and its purpose is to increase volunteering opportunities for organisations and individuals in Knox. Volunteer for Knox will plan, implement and evaluate high quality services that result in public recognition of the value of volunteering for Knox.
Please note that Volunteer for Knox is unable to assist job seekers required to do community service hours in order to receive unemployment benefits. Jobseekers can either approach an organization directly or seek the assistance of one of the government funded employment services.
The staff of Volunteer for Knox are holding informal information sessions for people wishing to volunteer within not for profit community services in the City of Knox.
We have over 80 registered services who are super keen to welcome new volunteers to assist in providing much needed services to the community of Knox.
