Volunteering and Community Engagement Opportunities
The Inspiring Young People program aims to connect local high school students with the wider Gippsland community to share information about different careers and pathways.
The program is on the lookout for working men and women, with a diverse range of careers and experience, to volunteer.
The Inspiring Young Women program is over a dinner on May 13th in Morwell. The "Straightalk" men's program occurs over lunch time (roughly 2 hours) with multiple sessions throughout the year. Full details for both TBC. Mentoring opportunities for the students could arise out of these sessions however it is not obligatory.
Further information about how to volunteer for this program to follow.

Why give Blood?
Blood is vital to life and for many people blood donors are their lifeline. Currently only 1 in 30 people give blood, but 1 in 3 people will need blood in their lifetime.
Modern processing techniques mean that a single blood donation, when separated into its components, can help at least 3 different patients and contribute to making up to 22 different products (including potentially life-saving immunisations for chicken pox, hepatitis B and tetanus).
