Why do you volunteer/work with Travellers Aid? At the start, the reason why I wanted to volunteer with Travellers Aid was that I had enjoyed volunteering when I was younger and really wished that I had more free time to do it again. I also really enjoy walking around in the Melbourne CBD area and am quite handy with Google Maps, so I thought that being a companion would be a really good fit for me. I now work in Travellers Aid because there is an amazing culture and it is a great place of growth for me career-wise.

What do you like the most about volunteering/working with Travellers Aid? When volunteering, I definitely enjoyed the connection made with the client. I was lucky in having a regular client and was able to make a special bond. While working, I enjoy being able to see the process of an applicant who wants to volunteer with us, to them actually volunteering with us.
