Getting Involved

U3A Office Volunteers

Office volunteers are an integral part of the U3A administration. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of twice a month to keep abreast of any changes. Volunteers are always rostered in pairs so no one is left to manage alone. The atmosphere, whilst professional, is both friendly and informal. Training is provided in all areas of the job and you never need to feel foolish for asking the same question repeatedly.
