VIEW's volunteering role
Each year, The Smith Family relies on the generosity of more than 8,000 volunteers who give more than 300,000 hours of their time and talent, helping the organisation achieve its vision of a better future for young Australians in need.
VIEW Club members are some of the most active volunteers for The Smith Family. Members assist at after school Learning Clubs, mentor students participating in the iTrack mentoring program, and assist with administration and office tasks in many Smith Family offices around the country. Without them, and thousands of other volunteers, much of the work of The Smith Family would not be possible.
"With the changing face of volunteering, one thing that doesn’t change is our reliance on the direct support of volunteers in local communities. Our programs simply wouldn’t run without them," says The Smith Family's Volunteering Manager, Lauren Stocker.
"VIEW members provide invaluable support to our programs, with many VIEW members volunteering in roles such as Learning Club tutors. Thank you to those fantastic VIEW members who are dedicating their time and skills by volunteering with The Smith Family."
