Volunteer Opportunities with Council
- Cook Shire Libraries welcome volunteers who can assist and train senior citizens in the operation of computers and navigation of the Internet. A minimum of two (2) hours per week will be required and a reasonable knowledge of computers and the Internet is essential.
- Cooktown and Cape York Visitor Information Centre @ Natures Powerhouse have opportunities for volunteers who have specific knowledge about the Cape York region and would like to share their knowledge with others. For example, if you are an avid bushwalker and speak about the various tracks and trails in our area, we'd love to talk to you. We also appreciate anyone who can just pop in and chat to our visitors about Cooktown and Cape York, hand our information and give directions to local landmarks and venues.
- Council run events, including Christmas in Cook Shire and the Cooktown & District Country Show, have dedicated volunteers who help organise and run these activities for our community. There is always room for more helpers in a wide variety of roles within these events.
If you are interested in volunteering with Cook Shire Council, please phone Counci's Community Grants and Development Officer, Fiona Brady on 4069 5444 or email email@example.com.
