Volunteer with LINC Tasmania

Volunteers make a major contribution to the lives of our clients across Tasmania every day of the year.

Our volunteers are improving the lives of Tasmanians and building stronger communities by:

  • Helping clients improve their literacy skills
  • Delivering books to aged care facilities and home library clients
  • Assisting with making Tasmanian heritage information more accessible through indexing, preserving or digitising our resources
  • Providing mentoring and guidance for adult learners
  • Getting involved in kids' programs
  • Helping clients to use computers and to access the online world

What's in it for you?

As a volunteer you can:

  • Gain satisfaction by helping others build their own skills and knowledge
  • Connect with others and participate in your community
  • Learn new skills and gain work experience
  • Increase your confidence
  • Choose from a variety of volunteering opportunities in the one organisation

LINC Tasmania is a leader in volunteer management and aims to be a best practice 'volunteer-involved organisation'. Through the efforts of our volunteers, communities and individuals gain many benefits as they learn, discover and access.
