Volunteer Spotlight – Casey
My name is Casey and volunteering for Youngcare is one of the best choices that I’ve ever made. I first heard about Youngcare at the University of Queensland Volunteer Expo and I didn’t hesitate to sign up!
I strongly believe that young people deserve a life of dignity, choice and independence just like I have and that’s exactly what Youngcare promotes.
I volunteered at Oktoberfest and at a Melbourne Cup fundraiser and both were really colourful and amazing events. Each volunteer shift is different and I always really enjoy working with new people and in different positions. I’m glad to be able to spend my time helping others; I think that’s the most important thing about volunteering for me, to offer my assistance and to let people know that I care.
My volunteer experience with Youngcare has taught me a lot, and it’s an honour to be a part of this wonderful organisation, thanks everybody for your kindness and encouragement!
