Community Service

  • Currently I am involved in AFS Student Exchange. I have been involved with this organisation since I went on Student Exchange to France in 1999. I have been a Student Support volunteer for several students, giving foreign exchange students support while they are on exchange in Australia. I have also volunteered at predeparture camps, preparing students who are going on exchange.
  • I have completed Yooralla Youth Ministries traineeship and mission trips. In 2005 I competed a leadership traineeship, and took 2 trips to Mexico to build houses for the poor. Yooralla Youth Ministries aims to empower and raise up young people to be leaders.
