John Curtin Weekend (JCW) involves Curtin Volunteers!’ largest community projects, and they are now live for registration!

These projects take place in September and October each year. Volunteers work with locals on community identified projects at regional and metropolitan sites across Western Australia.

Riding on the back of a tractor in Merredin and watching the sunset; taking photos with sheep, goats and cows at Possum Valley; meeting horses in Brigadoon – these are just some of the activities previous volunteers experienced last year at JCW.

“The best part about being on a JCW is seeing the faces of the Site Contacts at the end of the trip – knowing that we had made a positive, big or small, in the work that they do. In particular, the volunteers’ smiles as they too experience what being a part of JCW is like,” says Jia Ho, who joined the Chittering site last year.

Interested? Registrations for first site offerings are now open!

Register on the Curtin Volunteers! portal to sign up to these amazing weekend projects! More information including photos of last year’s sites can be found at the John Curtin Weekend webpage.
