Why Volunteer?

We would appreciate your help

U3A Stonnington is run totally by volunteers. This includes reception, admin, catering, running audio visual equipment, committees, etc.

Volunteer Roles?

Almost anything that you can think of. You might like to spend a couple of hours each week or fortnight to help with our reception or office area, help with our website or social media, assist with special events or projects or assist with setting-up A/V equipment for tutors, preparing rooms for classes, and gardens. You may have other skills that you wish to offer.

Perhaps you would like to join one of our committees, and assist in the management of our U3A.

How much of my time would it take?

We have volunteers who spend a couple of hours a week or fortnight, others who spend some time almost every day. Some are on call only at certain times. Some volunteers help mostly from home. It all depends on the role that you choose to take and the time you have available.

Some examples:

  • Committee member (e.g. Committee of Management.)
  • Social media, newsletter and publicity
  • Excursions
  • Special events
  • Functions and catering, coffee club
  • Expanding membership
  • ReceptionMembership Services
  • Audio Visual equipment setup for tutor presentations (some familiarity with computers is an asset; other training will be provided)
  • Website
  • Project assistance and new initiatives

If you wish to be a committee member, it would be expected that you would attend a 1.5 hour monthly meeting plus other responsibilities that take varying amounts of time.

Travel or other commitments?

The thing about being a volunteer is that you say when you are available. Many of our volunteers travel or take time for other commitments. You call the shots!


Please think about the area in which you would like to volunteer. It could be one of the areas mentioned or you might have other skills to share. Then,
