In a Queensland-first, Council is looking for 20 young people aged 14 to 18 who are interested in community resilience, to study a Certificate II in Active Volunteering, at no charge.

During 2022 Bundaberg Regional Council will be working in partnership with Volunteers Queensland and Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) to deliver a free community resilience program to young people aged 14- 18 years who live in the Bundaberg Regional Council area and are enrolled in one of our region’s high schools.

The Community Resilience Youth Program aims to build a base of young volunteers who are connected to our community while gaining real-world skills, experience and confidence that are required in today’s workplaces.

This will be the first time a project like this has been delivered in Queensland, with spaces limited to 20 participants.

Participating young people will enrol in a five-month program that includes:

  • Completing a CHC24015 Certificate II in Active Volunteering (RTO:6020) Find out more in the Vol QLD handout here.

  • This survey is for the students that attended the recent RYPEN camp from Friday 22-24 April in Yeppoon. 

    The questions will ask about your experience. This information will assist us in understanding if the camp has helped or made a change in your thinking on leadership and personal growth.

    All responses are anonymous and we ask you to create an 8 digit number, using the first 4 digits of your birth date (day and month) and the last 4 digits of your mobile number: 

    Eg: birthday 2 May 2002 – 02/05/2002 and mobile number 0406 952 687 =  0205 2687 

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting Andrea Bax: Community Resilience Coordinator: andrea.bax@bundaberg.qld.gov.au or 4130 4175
