Meet the NT RAVN State Representatives
RAVN State Representatives are motivated, returned Australian volunteers who voluntarily lead RAVN networking activities in their states and territories. State Representatives also engage with Australian aid initiatives and other returned volunteers as well as support the Australian Volunteers Program and grow awareness of the impact and value of volunteering.
Kendra Frew volunteered for two years in Vietnam where she worked with an organisation that helped to match disadvantaged children with safe and secure employment. While in Vietnam, Kendra also volunteered with local NGOs, teaching them human resources management skills.
Currently, Kendra is working as a lawyer in the field of employment law and has over 15 years of experience working in the human resources field.
Being a RAVN State Representative keeps me connected to the volunteer program and the volunteering community, which I am extremely passionate about. I look forward to volunteering again in the not too distant future so that I can assist others with their legal issues.
Madeleine Legge volunteered in Tonga between 2012 and 2013 as an economic policy analyst with the Tongan Ministry of Infrastructure. She continued working in Tonga after her assignment as a Sports for Development Consultant for the Australian Government.
Madeleine has qualifications in history and economics and will soon complete her Master of Public Health through the Menzies School of Population Health. Currently, Madeleine works as the Northern Territory Regional Community Development Manager for the Alcohol and Drug Foundation and continues to volunteer locally.
When I moved to Darwin I got involved in a local program that takes young people experiencing social disadvantage out sailing. Volunteering locally remains important to me and being a water lover, sailing with Rotakat provided the perfect opportunity.
