Our Volunteer System

U3A maintains a policy of engaging its members as volunteers to fulfil all of the administrative and teaching tasks needed to keep the organisation operating effectively.  This volunteering allows us to keep our Membership Fees to a minimum, noting that we are a non-for-profit organisation with limited resources.   It also allows us to tap in to the many and diverse life, professional and other skills of our members.   Some Members keep their professional skills up to date by volunteering to run courses.

At Wheelers Hill U3A, we acknowledge our members’ contribution by enabling all volunteers to enroll into classes for the following year ahead of others. We are happy to say that most of our members take advantage of this incentive.    The following is a list of the roles available to our Volunteers:
