Since PARCA was founded over 20 years ago we have received the help of numerous volunteers. They are a tremendous asset to our organisation and we value their contribution greatly. Volunteers are involved in a number of roles including assisting with the ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) classes, helping out at various events as well as other tasks. Some have even gone on to work for PARCA full time”.
