Requirements: Working With Children Check*

At EdConnect we are training and mobilising an army of volunteers, particularly retirees and seniors, to provide life changing mentoring and learning support in schools for students who are at risk of not fulfilling their educational potential.

We are currently seeking 4 volunteers to assist students at a local school, after school hours every Wednesday from 3pm – 4pm. Volunteers must be able to commit 1 hour per week. We are looking for volunteers to support a small group of students in a homework club. Students are from non-English speaking backgrounds and require additional help and support. The classroom will be supervised by a teacher and volunteers are needed to provide support and encouragement to students with their learning.

We are looking for volunteers who can offer assistance in one or more of the following areas: Numeracy, English, Humanities and History subjects. Volunteers need to be compassionate, patient and be willing to genuinely help students.

Many of our current volunteers find this program personally rewarding as they help students thrive. The impact volunteers can make on a young person’s life goes well beyond their school years. This is an opportunity to not only help, shape, and support young people and schools, it may even enrich a volunteer’s life as well.

We’ve recruited and trained thousands of volunteers who have helped many more thousands of young people throughout Australia. At any one time we have over 1,000 volunteers active in schools in over 260 schools across the country.

Every year, our volunteers provide life-changing – potentially life-saving – support for more than 12,000 young people. We’re talking about academic, emotional and everyday support that provides both a safety net and a springboard for students who might otherwise struggle.
