Here's what two of our volunteers have to say ......

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to volunteer at the Adelaide Hills VIC. My time there gave me confidence in a workplace once again after being out of the workforce for a number of years while I raised my family. I’ve acquired skills such as assisting visitors from all over the world, working in a team, office systems, retail sales, booking accommodations and tours etc. I was always very proud to work at the VIC as it was so well resourced and my fellow volunteers were a font of local knowledge. Due to gaining these skills and my confidence growing I was able to apply for paid work and succeeded in gaining employment. I will be forever grateful for your belief in me and for giving me this experience." Lisa H

"Hi my name is Barb and I was a volunteer at the Hahndorf Visitor Centre for over 2 years and it was an amazing experience I volunteered 2- 3 days per week and I made some great new friends and felt I made a difference.  I met people from every state in Australia and from every country in the world it was just amazing. I also learnt new skills and being able to assist visitors to the Adelaide Hills make the most of their time in the region was very satisfying and a lot of fun. If you have time on your hands and wanting to make a difference then give it a try." Barb H
