Youth volunteering

The City of Kwinana has a range of youth (12 to 24) volunteer opportunities available. Find out the benefits of volunteering, how to apply and what’s on offer.

Benefits of Volunteering

Not sure if you want to volunteer? By becoming a youth volunteer, you will:

  • get to meet and make friendships with other young people who have similar interests;
  • gain valuable experience that may help with employment down the track;
  • feel more connected to your community;
  • develop new skills or expand on the ones you already have;​
  • increase your self confidence; and
  • give back to your community.

Types of Volunteering Opportunities

The City has a range of volunteering opportunities available. These include volunteering at specific events, such as the annual youth event, and different programs/activities. If you’d like to see what programs are currently on offer, head to the Things To Do For Youth page.

Alternatively, you can also come to us with your own idea, and we can see if we can get it up and running! Just contact the Zone Youth Space on 9236 4550, or send the Zone Youth Space an email.

If you’re wanting more of a challenge, get involved with the Kwinana Youth Advisory Council. Become a leader in the community and tackle specific issues relating to youth in the City.

Eligibility

To be a youth volunteer, you need to be aged between 12 and 24. If you’re 18 or over, you will also need a Working With Children Check, but don’t worry – we can help you get that.

Also, if you're an adult looking to give back and help young people, we are always on the lookout for positive role models who can share skills, help supervise at drop-in or other programs, or even run a program yourself out in your community.

How to Apply

If you'd like to apply to be a volunteer, you can pick up an application form from the Library, or download one here. Once you have completed your application form, email it to Kwinana Volunteering.

For more information, contact the Zone Youth Space on 9236 4550, or visit the Volunteer Centre
