Become a Member
We welcome community membership. Members receive our quarterly newsletter, invitations to special events and free entry to our end of year celebration. Members can also nominate to become a member of the Centre’s Management Committee. We are always keen for participation from the community to reflect the needs of the community of which we are a part. Membership is $2 a year.
Our volunteers tell us they find their work satisfying and enjoy making a difference in their local community. We aim to make volunteering rewarding by matching volunteers to roles that meet their needs and interests, providing the support and training they need to do their job, and recognising and celebrating achievements.
People volunteer at Maranoa Heights Community Centre for many reasons. Some of our volunteers say they like using their skills and experience to give back to the community or to help people in need. Others enjoy learning new skills, meeting new people in their community, and building friendships. Some volunteers want to increase their employability or get work experience.
If you are interested in volunteering, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the Centre Coordinator on 6229 4066 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
