Selena, a student from the Ipswich State High School, is currently working to overcome some personal issues and difficulties. Selena is presently living independently and completing Year 12.

Selena has been involved in many activities surrounding safety awareness, such as the Road Safety Campaign for year 12 students called the ‘Rocky Horror Road Show’ in Ipswich and the Daniel Morcombe Foundation.

Kelsey is a Year 11 student from Murrumba State Secondary College and volunteers with Riding for the Disabled at Pine Rivers.

She has been enjoying horse riding since she was three years old, so when the school offered her the optional elective of a CHC34015 Certificate III in Active volunteering (SAAVI), she happily accepted. Kelsey saw this as an opportunity to combine her passion for horse riding with giving back to her community and following in her mother’s footsteps as a volunteer for Riding for the Disabled.

In partnership with Volunteering Queensland (RTO #6020), Queensland Secondary Schools, Special Schools and Alternate Training Programs can offer their Year 11 and 12 students the chance to undertake a nationally recognised Certificate I, II or III in Active Volunteering through the Students As Active Volunteers Initiative (SAAVI).

Brittany is one of the students completing a CHC24015 Certificate II in Active volunteering.
