Peter Tsipas, RMIT Training’s Governance and Policy Support Manager, recently spent a day volunteering at North Yarra Community Health (NYCH) as part of RMIT Training’s community day initiative.
Peter took photos for the NYCH annual report, toured NYCH’s Collingwood facilities and Innerspace centre and had the pleasure of attending the annual staff forum. He also helped present the Friends of the Earth Café on Smith Street with a certificate of appreciation for providing food to the homeless and needy.
NYCH runs high-quality programs and services in Collingwood, Carlton and Fitzroy to help people to overcome experiences of disadvantage, discrimination and disempowerment.
RMIT Training’s initiative provides for each employee to take a day of volunteer leave every year to undertake activities with a not-for-profit group or community service organisation.
‘The initiative reflects the company's belief that it is important to give back to society in ways that are meaningful and responsive to the needs around us,’ Rachel Holthouse, CEO of RMIT Training, said.
RMIT Training employees can seize the opportunity to volunteer in the community by completing a volunteer leave request form and submitting it to Human Resources.
