GLWA kicks off its Regional Volunteers Program in Qld
Queensland’s Gay and Lesbian Welfare Association (GLWA) launched its Regional Volunteer Program this week, the first information pack being sent out to the Sunshine Coast yesterday.
The regional volunteers' primary role will be to act as GLWA ambassadors in their communities, distributing publicity and information merchandise to local venues and services – including pamphlets, wristbands, badges and fridge magnets.
GLWA is a non-profit organisation with a focus on the well-being of LGBTI communities through the operation of the Gay Line and Lesbian line, a peer telephone counselling service staffed by volunteers.
GLWA will provide material to be distributed by the volunteers, plus training about the organisation and WH&S training.
Training and supervision will be delivered to regional volunteers remotely, utilising IT/teleweb resources.
People interested in volunteering with GLWA can apply here.
