Day 17: Amazing Volunteers
Diversitat is proud and privileged to be supported by 650+ dedicated volunteers who work alongside our employees, supporting the high quality services and programs that are run across the organisation.
“My experience as a volunteer has exceeded my expectations! I entered the programs wanting to assist refugees to settle within my local community and to express my social responsibility in a practical and ‘real’ way of benefit to them. What I wasn’t expecting were the many personal benefits I have gained from this program. I have formed relationships with my mentees and their families. I am learning as much as, if not more than, my mentees. One of the most special things I have discovered is that a sense of humour and shared ‘good laugh’ easily cross the cultural and language ‘divide’. (Volunteer tutor)
