Back to School Volunteering Opportunities


With school resuming for 2020 (along with TAFE and University), have you thought about becoming part of your community by volunteering in our education sector?

Help future leaders to grow their vocabulary, language, socialising skills and creativity. Contribute to children's life-long skills that will support their future growth and learning. Help marginalised adults increase their English language skills or improve their success at university.

You don’t need to volunteer a whole day or be there every day, as many volunteering opportunities are flexible. Even an hour of your time can make a big difference in a student’s life, from reading a story, to providing a positive role model, and many more life-changing roles.

Here are just some of the many opportunities for volunteering in your community:
