Volunteers

BCC relies on the generous support of volunteers to assist with daily operations, general office duties, gardening, tutoring, committee of management and special events. If you are able to offer some of your time to BCC it will help to share the work load. Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends and learn new skills. If you are interested, make a time to have a chat with our manager, Meredith.

See our Volunteer page for current volunteer opportunities.

History

BCC grew from humble beginnings in 1975 when a group of local women met to discuss women's recreational needs in the Frankston area. Arising from this, the Women's Activity Group (WAG) was born. It provided activities directed at women including recreational, self-help and parenting. It also address problems associated with attending these activities such as free childcare, transport and low cost activities. 

WAG was incorporated in 1983 and has since had 2 name changes: Bayside Adult Community Education Inc and Belvedere Community Centre Inc. These changes were brought about by the changing dynamics if the community, one change was to accept men into classes. 

Over the years WAG / Belvedere Community Centre was housed in the Frankston area in other location. The Seaford location was purpose built by Frankston council in 1991.
