Volunteering Services Australia Volunteering Green Card

Volunteering Services Australia, Peopleplan and Virtu Institute have partnered together to create a learning platform which enables volunteers to develop high quality volunteering services that benefit local communities.

“I’m proud to announce that Volunteering Services Australia in partnership with Peopleplan and Virtu Institute have created a Volunteering Green Card. The purpose of this program is to provide volunteers with a deep understanding of the key aspects of volunteering,” said Richard Patterson, Chief Executive Officer of Volunteering Services Australia.

The Volunteering Green Card is available for purchase online via the Volunteering Services Australia website for $59.95. Volunteers who would like to advance their volunteer journey can complete the Volunteer Green Card and Certification for $179.95.

“The Volunteering Green Card is comprised of three modules; Getting Ready to Volunteer, Let’s Get Volunteering and Being a Great Volunteer, which can be completed by volunteers online at their own pace,” said Mr Patterson.

The Volunteering Green Card and Certification includes the three online modules, volunteers will then be placed in a suitable volunteer role to complete 20 volunteer hours after the completion of the three units. An assessment will take place at the end and successful volunteers will receive a Certificate of Attainment CHCVOL001 Become an Effective Volunteer.

“The Volunteering Green Card and Certification provides volunteers an opportunity to further develop and expand their volunteer knowledge and understanding. Volunteering Services Australia will find volunteers a suitable volunteer position where they will complete 20 volunteer hours before they receive their Certificate of Attainment,” explained Mr Patterson.
