Why volunteer?

We recognize the contribution of our volunteers with events, services awards and exclusive stories and updates from inside the Brotherhood. Watch the video and see what volunteers say about their involvement with us.


Morning Tea in the Hood

Every year during national volunteer week we hold Morning Tea in the Hood to celebrate volunteer contribution. Last year we consumed 66 square meters of cake across more than 30 Brotherhood sites! That’s got to be a reason to join our volunteer team.
