Volunteer with Men/Women Program

Drug & Alcohol Support Long Term Norton Summit, SA

About this opportunity

We are a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. We also cater for people with other life controlling problems. Our program is a 12 month live-in program and we rely a lot on volunteers. We are also a Christian program and we have studies based on Christian studies, values and ethics.

This is a varied program:
Volunteers are needed to work with students for either a short time during the day perhaps taking them to appointments, either doctors, lawyers, etc.
~They may like to assist teachers for around about five hours a day.
~They may like to mentor students or help with cleaning, looking after some animals or take them for walks or drive them to a park or to the museum.
~Then we have overnight sleep overs (this is a 24/7 residential program and volunteers sleep over with our students just in case there is a problem overnight [(men live separately to women)].

We feed you any time you are here and usually you enjoy your time with us and the students. We also train you and you have support.

This is a Christian organisation and our teaching and training is based on biblical values. The students who come to this program want to change and usually try hard.
