TEENAGER Teague Townsend is proof that you are never too young to start volunteering.

The 16-year-old has been volunteering for the Shire of Mundaring’s Seen and Heard youth service for about 18 months.

“I was looking for a good youth group and I found out that you can help others and help organise events, so that seemed like a good opportunity,” he said.

“There is no part that I particularly enjoy the most; I like the whole experience, from helping younger kids to going to events.

“I like the laser tag event and going to music events.”

Along with completing his tertiary studies in gaming design, Teague volunteers two afternoons a week at Swan View Youth Centre and tries to attend as many of the service’s events as possible.

“I hope to continue volunteering with Seen and Heard for as long as possible, it’s just great,” he said.

The Shire’s annual Thank a Volunteer Day will be held in November. Submissions to nominate a volunteer close Friday, October 9. For more call 9290 6773 or visit www.mundaring.wa.gov.au.
