My name is Gemma and one of my goals is to participate in some voluntary work in a Child Care Centre. As part of my weekly activities, I now go to a Child Care Centre each Monday where I participate in voluntary work.
Gai, a staff member supported me at first, who encouraged and assisted me when needed but now I am confident enough to go on my own.
My voluntary work provides me with the opportunity to spend time with young children in an educational setting. My voluntary work has helped me to build my confidence and extend my social networks. I’m proud of my achievements and look forward to helping the children to participate in their favourite activities each Monday.
I am also part of the group ‘Sing Australia’. We are a group of singers who each fortnight entertain people at Community Centres, Nursing Homes and many other venues. I have a great beat to the music and my role in the group is to play the tambourine.
