Volwing:
Wingecarribee Volunteer Centre

Volwing (more formally Wingecarribee Volunteer Centre) is the volunteer resource organisation in Wingecarribee Shire, the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.

As an independent organisation, Volwing provides a service to the community that is an integral part of Wingecarribee Shire Council’s strategic plan. Volwing is funded by an annual contribution from Council, by grants for projects, by membership fees, by fund raising and by donations.

Volwing does not have a monopoly on volunteering in the Southern Highlands. Volwing works with other community groups to ensure the ongoing strength of the local volunteer sector, driven by our ethos that volunteering is win-win, and boosted by our knowledge that the Southern Highlands, an ageing, highly educated community where women do so much of the heavy lifting, is unique.

Learner Driver Mentor Program

Volwing’s Learner Driver Mentor Program gets disadvantaged young adults behind the wheel and on the road to worthwhile careers.

The Learner Driver Mentor Program is just one of the volunteer opportunities open to people in the Southern Highlands. A key feature is that it is inter-generational. Older volunteers are mentoring youngsters. The feedback already is that our mentors are enjoying being a part of the young learners’ lives, even for short periods.

TechKnow

Volwing is launching a new program, involving seniors and new information technology. The initiative is called TechKnow, the intention is that younger people will teach older people. The program will provide support for interested older people to develop IT skills so they can stay connected, informed and enjoy a safe online experience. It has been shown that connectedness can reduce isolation.
