U3A Gympie is run entirely by members for members. We are all volunteers. If you would like to help, there are various opportunities:
TUTOR OR FACILITATE – Do you have skills or knowledge you would enjoy sharing with others? Perhaps you speak a foreign language, have artistic skills or know a great deal about an interesting topic. Our Class Coordinator can find members who are keen to form a class with which you can share these.
Some activities need organisers rather than tutors. Perhaps you would enjoy swapping traveller’s tales, discussing philosophy, collaborating to write a recipe book or pursuing some other interest with like-minded people? Our Class Coordinator looks after these groups too.
COMMITTEE – All Management Committee positions are declared vacant at the Annual General Meeting. Positions also sometimes become available at other times of the year. If you have some great ideas for U3A Gympie, and some useful skills, please consider nominating for a position on the Committee at the next opportunity.
HELPING HANDS – Committee members have many tasks to do and can always use some help. If you are considering nominating for a Committee position, being a Helping Hand is a great way to learn the ropes.
There are also numerous opportunities for more casual volunteering, from writing receipts at Open Day or staffing promotional displays to providing extra help to students in IT classes. Whether you can spare a few hours a week, a month or even as a one off sometime during the year, your help would be appreciated.
