How We Work
Volunteers are required to undertake a two week tertiary level formation at the commencement of their year as an Augustinian Volunteer.
They are required to volunteer at least one day a week for twelve months. Many do more.
Although they come with their own expertise, our volunteers focus on building relationship and bridges between cultures and communities.
Our volunteers are supervised and supported through regular meetings with staff
Expected outcomes of this approach include:
Empowerment of communities
Participation of young people in education and employment
Strengthening of identity and self-worth
Augustinian Volunteers is an enterprise of the Augustinian Justice and Peace Office
Our volunteers undergo a tertiary level course to ensure they are ready to serve.
Working with Aboriginal, refugee and other communities in need.
Our experienced staff support volunteers every step of the way.
