Some exciting news!
We were approached by the Office of Multicultural Interests for their National Volunteers Week feature. My relationship with OMI goes all the way back to 2005 when Shameema and I set up Muslim Youth WA. As part of the incorporation process we were helped along by two very supportive staff at OMI who later introduced us to the Ethnic Youth Advisory Group where we contributed to the development of policies affecting younger members of CALD communities. Looking back, that was a pretty cool thing we were able to do!
By the way,
National Volunteer Week (NVW) is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.
We got our stories and pictures together and sent them off to OMI. Here is the final output (you can click the image to read the full article).
