joliSaluteVolunteer at MASG

Since its establishment in 2006, the growth and success of MASG has largely been possible because of the wonderful contribution made by its volunteers.

MASG volunteers are therefore the life blood of the organisation which currently operates with only 4 paid staff members

Volunteering at MASG and sharing your gifts is a two way journey as there are opportunities for experience in a wide range of activities and to become part of a team that is passionate about creating resilient and sustainable communities.

Current Openings:

Office administration and reception duties
