Volunteers

Volunteers make an invaluable contribution to TaskForce. Our vibrant and growing volunteer community includes participants from all age groups and from all walks of life – including tertiary students, parents and retirees.

Volunteers have the opportunity to become involved in a range of ‘front-of-house’ and ‘behind-the-scenes’ activities within the organization – from assisting in our Art Therapy and Cooking Programs to helping us with back office tasks.
