Volunteer Induction

Testimonials

I started at East Creek Neighbourhood Centre on the 14/04/09 after looking for something worthwhile to do. I came in as a volunteer and along the way, have made many friends and have gained computer skills which I now use in my everyday life.

My positive experience has been that I met a lot of people both volunteers and general public, and have gained an insight as to what the Centre can offer the community.

I would recommend the Centre to anyone and even if they just dropped in for a cuppa and a chat, they would see what we do.

I am enjoying volunteering here and say to others to give it a try.

Beverley
Receptionist

I have been working for the East Creek Community Centre as a volunteer receptionist since 2016 on Wednesdays and Thursdays and am available for relief work when required. I have been involved in meeting and greeting clients, welcoming them to the Centre, appointment making, answering the phone and assisting with enquiries. I also assist with catering and preparation of morning teas etc. for the various fun filled functions held at the Centre.

All visitors and clients are warmly welcomed to East Creek and enjoy a variety of activities and programmes.

i thoroughly enjoy my volunteer position and feel rewarded by the kindness and genuine appreciate extended to me by the Manager, Sally Fischer, and other staff members and clients, enabling me to gain confidence and enjoyment, as well as the opportunity to make friends and share in the many community based programmes.

I've been working here for about 2 years now, and I've gotta say it's been pretty fun, I came here originally just to get myself out of the house, but I've found it to be a very rewarding experience.

I volunteer in I.T, so I spend most of my time practicing black magic and wondering how a PC refuses to work after doing everything the wealth of human knowledge said to do, only for it to fix itself of its own accord a few moments later.
However the relief when it works again is unlike anything you'll ever experience.

In all seriousness, we offer low cost/no cost services resolving issues with electronics that you have trouble with. We can also teach you to use your devices, be they smart phones, tablets, laptops, PC's, printers etc.

If you're thinking about volunteering, come join up, we have volunteer benefits, like a HTC Vive and a few other fun things.
