Whether itโ€™s helping with social media, taking photos, working on a barbeque or being a committee member, our alumni have shown volunteering for CEF is fun, engaging and rewarding by giving their time and capability to our local CEF foundations. ๐Ÿ’ช

Our volunteers are everything to us, and in recognition of @volunteeringaustralia National Volunteer Week this week, we`re celebrating how important our 430+ volunteers are. ๐Ÿ˜

Some of them are also alumni that were supported by their local foundation to make the affordability of their studies possible, and as a token of gratitude, they are now CEF volunteers themselves!

Read all about three of them below- Lachie Barrett (@cefcoonamble and @cef_orangeanddistrict), Heather Walker (Country Education Foundation of Grenfell) and Brittany Glanville (Great Lakes Education Fund) ๐Ÿ‘‡

Not many know the importance of supporting rural and regional youth like our alumnus Lachie Barrett does. โœ”๏ธ

From his humble upbringing in Coonamble, western NSW, he was supported by @cefcoonamble which allowed him to complete his studies in education at @sydney_uni. ๐Ÿค

Now working as a teacher at @kinrosswolaroischool in Orange, NSW, he volunteers on the committee of @cef_orangeanddistrict. ๐Ÿ’ช

This week marks Volunteering Australia`s National Volunteer Week - a week that celebrates the diverse passions and talents everyone brings to volunteering, with this yearโ€™s theme being โ€˜Something for Everyoneโ€™. ๐Ÿ‘

Our alumna Heather Walker, from Grenfell, is so passionate about supporting her local foundation, CEF Grenfell, she does so even without being on its committee. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Preparing promotional material, taking photos at events, helping at fundraisers and submitting its news to the local high school newsletter; she has done it all since she was first supported by them in 2020 while studying at @charlessturtuni. ๐Ÿ’ช

This week marks @volunteeringaustralia National Volunteer Week - a week that celebrates the diverse passions and talents everyone brings to volunteering, with this yearโ€™s theme being โ€˜Something for Everyoneโ€™. ๐Ÿ‘

It is National Volunteer Week and this year`s theme is "something for everyone". This week we focus on our volunteers and the incredible work they do.

Without question, over 430 volunteers across five states and territories prove that volunteering for CEF offers something for everyone. Their passion, dedication and commitment have changed lives through education. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™

Nobody can tell you this better than the students they support, like Billy from Forster, NSW- a Great Lakes Education Fund grant recipient and student at @southerncrossuni.

Thank you to our CEF volunteers. You change lives. And families. And communities. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฅฐ

When CEF and @braidwood_education_foundation (BDEF) alumna Anjali Williams was asked to join the BDEF committee in 2018 it was a very easy "yes" for her! โœ”๏ธ

After BDEF supported her with grants while she studied at the @citcanberra, it was a no-brainer for her to give back by volunteering for them. ๐Ÿค

๐Ÿ‘ Thank you, @upstandingco! ๐Ÿ‘

A group of students studying Business at @bonduniversity, called Upstanding, decided to fundraise for us as part of a project they undertook in their studies. ๐Ÿคฉ

They had no idea who we were or what we did until they came across us on Google, but still chose us as their charity partner because of the clear impact we have on regional students. ๐Ÿ’ช

And thanks to their efforts, designing and selling laptop stands, we have more in the kitty to continue helping our rural and regional students access post school education and employment. ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ

Read all about how they fundraised for us at our blog link in bio.
