About this opportunity

At EdConnect we are training and mobilising an army of volunteers, 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 a volunteer to assist students during school hours. The volunteer must be able to commit a minimum 1 hour per week. We are looking for a volunteer to help in an Italian language class. Volunteers need to be fluent in Italian, 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 volunteers 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 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.

If you are looking to make a difference in a young person’s life, please contact us on 1800 668 550.
