We're run for and by the community
Volunteering keeps the wheels at Balwyn Evergreen turning. As an NFP organisation, we rely on the skills and generosity of our volunteers to help us provide our essential programs and services.
Looking for a volunteer opportunity?
Volunteers are integral to the daily happenings at Balwyn Evergreen Centre, performing important roles such as driving the transport shuttle, serving meals, walking dogs and visiting people in their homes. Our volunteers help us deliver our quality services and, in turn, they benefit from the positive experience of being part of our community and making a difference in the lives of seniors.
Your perfect volunteer role is waiting!
Our transport service is critical for our clients to access our activities and programs.
Currently we need drivers for daily pick ups (van or car), the fortnightly shopping bus (van) and weekly outings.
If you're confident driving a minivan and happy to chat to our clients, please get in touch.
Make new human and furry friends when you become a dog walker for our community. We’re always on the lookout for pet lovers to make home visits to walk, feed and care for animal companions. This is a vital role that ensures our client's treasured pets still receive the care they deserve.
Get to know our community better and make the most of your skills by helping run our various weekly programs. Tasks include setting up rooms, collecting resources, communicating with members and helping with transport. Each program is different - talk to us about how you can help.
Kitchen & Dining Room Assistants
Balwyn Evergreen is famous for its food service. Whether it's morning or afternoon tea after an exercise class, our weekly luncheons or a special event, the food is always plentiful.
This role involves, setting up before and cleaning up after, plating and serving food and interacting with the community.
Front Office & Admin Support
Lend your support to our busy front office. You'll help meet and greet our members, record attendance, take payments and perform general admin duties, including ad hoc marketing support. This is a great role for anyone who enjoys the buzz that comes from friendly interactions.
Friendly In-Home Visitors
Seniors are particularly vulnerable to becoming socially isolated, especially if they don't have any family around. Our volunteers play an important part in keeping them connected with regular visits. If you like to chat and are willing to spend time with a senior in their home, then we'd love to hear from you.
Deciding to become a volunteer?
We 100% recommend it! But don't just take our word - our current volunteers are happy to share what prompted them to join our community and why volunteering with us is so worthwhile.
"The ambiance and attributes of Balwyn Evergreen eclipses all others. It's a beautiful, welcoming place with stunning street appearance. What really appeals to me is the inclusiveness - it's safe, accessible, modern and has a great vibe."
- Cameron, volunteer minivan driver
