To make Patersonia thrive we are going to need all sorts of volunteers.  We are responsible for the care, education and development of lots of amazing young people.  I'm sure there's some way you can help.  Share a hobby! Come out bush with us. Teach us about something you love! Drive a bus! Read with a child, play in the mud, there are lots of options. Help with administration or fundraising or just make a donation.  Have a suggestion, let us know.

At Patersonia we believe in having strong connections with our community.  We welcome volunteers and really value them as an important part of our environment. In fact, without volunteers our vision for Patersonia won't be fullfilled.  Patersonia is a different type of learning environment, one which more closely mirrors the real world.  We want our young people to mix with a diverse section of the community and have a broad range of mentors and guides.  If you are looking to contribute and would like to help us create a vibrant meaningful community, contact us today.  We believe we can change the world one small step and one small person at a time.

Meet Courtney


Courtney has always loved working with kids. In order to make sure Courtney gets her kid time in, she volunteers every Tuesday morning out in the bush helping kids explore, create and connect with nature, space, fresh air and the many small wonders of the great outdoors.

All volunteers are required to have a current Working with Children People Registration and untertake induction training for safety purpose.  The cost of this is approximately $20 and will be reimbursed on request.
