"Last year I volunteered together at Florey Primary School doing the migrant and refugee mentoring program which was really incredible and I'd encourage everyone to get involved with it."
The program aims to foster a sense of identity and belonging, empowering migrant and refugee children to achieve their full potential. Volunteers support children in Kindy up to Year 6 in a classroom setting with a teacher present. Activities vary according to the needs of the schools and students, and can be a mix of individual and group tasks.
We offer training to our volunteers in cross-cultural communication and teaching English as a second language.
Time Frame: Sessions are between 1-2 hours on weekdays during the school term.
• Volunteers must be 17 years and over.
• All volunteers must have a Working With Vulnerable People card (WWVP).
• Additional checks may also be required, including a National Criminal History Check, and/or reference checking.
• Volunteers should also be fluent in spoken and written English.
