Certificate II in Active Volunteering (CHC24015) is a qualification designed for entry level volunteers, where work takes place under direct, regular supervision within clearly defined guidelines. It assists in developing foundational skills to participate in the sector, including what it means to be a volunteer, how to prepare to volunteer, how to navigate different environments, how to communicate effectively, basic work safety, use of technology, and approaching basic writing tasks.
