Thankyou for your interest in volunteering with the Watsonia RSL.
At Watsonia we welcome all to join our dedicated volunteer team and embrace the spirit.
Volunteer roles at Watsonia RSL mainly centre on fundraising through selling badges just before ANZAC DAY and selling poppies prior to REMEMBRANCE DAY.
Sellers generally follow a in house roster and "set up shop" at larger shopping centres, hardware stores etc. Our Appeals Officer may require assistance to assemble, pack and deliver merchandise trays to local schools and businesses before, and then collect the proceeds and stock balances directly after our Appeals.
We also need assistance to sell raffle tickets at the Club on Friday and Saturday Nights.
Veteran Support volunteers provide well-being support to veterans and their families and may undertake a number of roles including:- Hospital & Home Visitation - Pensions Officers - Veteran Transport - Veterans Support Activities - Welfare Officers
Majority of veteran support roles require volunteers to undergo a National Police Check for Aged Care. Some Veterans Support roles such as Pensions Officers and Welfare Officers also require volunteers to undergo specialized accredited training to enable them to undertake their duties.
At Watsonia RSL, we fully support interested volunteers to become accredited.
For ANZAC DAY and REMEMBRANCE DAY our Volunteers may be called on to assist at our Annual Commemoration Services and Watsonia RSL has an extremely popular ANZAC Ceremony designed just for local Primary, Secondary and Special schools as we see educating younger generations as a vital task in supporting our Community.
Additionally to this end our Memorabilia Officer is always looking to add to our collection and maintain display to a high standard.
Administrative Support roles may include assisting in the day to day running of our club and we always seek people who can freely offer their time, trade or professional qualifications to assist us to make Watsonia RSL a better Veterans Support and Community place to enjoy.
