Volunteer involvement is a critical part of our sport. There are important benefits to both Little Athletics NSW and to volunteers when volunteers become involved in our organisation.
Volunteer involvement can contribute to, and extend the capacity of, Little Athletics NSW to meet its aims and goals. Volunteers can provide the time, skills, expertise, and points of view that enable our organisation to pursue programs and activities that benefit the community.
For individuals, volunteering provides an opportunity to be involved in activities reflecting their interests and using their skills. Meaningful activity in turn promotes a sense of belonging and general wellbeing. Volunteering can also be a way to develop skills, potential pathways to employment, or a way to contribute existing skills for the common good.
Volunteer involvement is a two-way relationship, providing an opportunity for Little Athletics NSW to achieve our goals by involving volunteers in our activities, and for volunteers to make meaningful use of their time and skills, contributing to social and community outcomes.
