Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism, with the support of Visit Victoria, has announced the launch of an innovative new program called Hands Up Mornington Peninsula — a State Government-funded project that has been developed to help better service the Peninsula region and its visitors.
Members of the Hands Up MP community will now be able to access tailored volunteering opportunities within the event space while providing business operators with access to a confident, reliable network of volunteers. Volunteers can sign up online and nominate their specialisations, knowledge and interests, and the Hands Up platform uses this information to match the right people with the most appropriate volunteering opportunities.
Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board chairman Tracey Cooper said: “Hands Up Mornington Peninsula is an exciting new program which will help to create more confident, knowledgeable volunteers within our community by providing them with the opportunity to strengthen their skillset through community and business engagement. The operators will then be able to access reliable volunteering staff suited to their events which together will help service our visitors and region at a higher level.”
Community members wanting to enter, refresh or further develop their expertise within the volunteer space will be given the opportunity to undertake certified non-accredited training. Certified training is due to be available in early 2020.
