Connecting and supporting others is one of the key purposes of volunteering at MiCare. We are one of the largest not-for-profit organisations providing programs to asylum seekers, refugees and migrants across a variety of services including child and youth activities, employment preparation, family support programs, retirement living and aged services.
MiCare has more than 500 volunteers across Victoria and Queensland, and we need more. At MiCare volunteers work to deliver grassroots programs that strengthen communities and ease the life of individuals.
We rely on our volunteers to deliver essential services that support people and in some cases, our volunteers rely on us: for rewarding experiences, for a meaningful sense of community, and for personal growth.
We have volunteering opportunities which are funded by the state and federal government, such as the community and friendly visiting scheme. We also have many other volunteering opportunities with children and playgroups, helping young people with homework and mentoring, communities, administration, driving, cooking, sharing skills such as teaching, companionship and more.
Volunteering helps with our own general health and wellness. For those looking to build their skills, having volunteer experience is often considered favourably when applying for a job. The experience of helping others often provides us with a sense of self-worth and inclusion.
