With the support and dedication of hundreds of volunteers across the state, WA PCYC is able to maintain its high level of engagement with the youth of Western Australia.
Volunteering for PCYC is a rich and rewarding experience. For many, volunteering is a chance to utilise skills and experience in order to make a difference to the lives of youth at risk and in the local community.
Our WA PCYC centres are always on the look-out for volunteers to assist in the delivery of services. Volunteers allow us to strengthen and add value to the quality of our diversionary programs and recreational activities that we offer to youth at risk and the Western Australian community.
Volunteers are involved in a range of WA PCYC activities including:
Community Programs and Services
Kitchen / Canteen Assistants
Blue Light Youth Activity / Disco Supervisors
Local Committee Members
Data Entry Assistants
Maintenance and Upkeep
Sport and Community Recreation
Umpires / Referees
Fundraising / Collection Assistants
Student Placements & Internship Programs
WA PCYC hosts university students for volunteer placements, internships, project work and work experience. Students studying within various disciplines, including social sciences, psychology and marketing are encouraged to consider WA PCYC for future placements and project work.
In some instances our volunteers may be required to obtain a National Police Clearance and/or a Working with Children Check and WA PCYC will provide support where applicable.
