As someone who has volunteered for organisations small and large, responding to issues ranging from refugees to mental health, I can say without a doubt that volunteering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.
Being a part of social change and fighting against discrimination and inequality in a post-truth world is one of the most important things you can do. The United Nations General Assembly declared 05 December International Volunteer Day to raise awareness of the power of volunteer work in building a more peaceful and equitable society. Participating in social change through volunteering allows you to be on the right side of history and contribute to a world in which everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
Recently, AFFMA was recognised for its incredible achievements and was awarded the 2016 Regional Volunteer Team of the year. We were also nominated for the State Volunteer Team of the Year award. Being a part of the AFFMA team makes you a representative of a highly respected organisation and allows you help make Australia a better place. It can give you a first step into the refugee and NGO sector and teach you invaluable skills.
