Literacy support needed for secondary students - Altona North area

Education & Training Regular - more than 6 months Altona North VIC

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 volunteers to assist students at a secondary school, during school hours. Volunteers must be able to commit a minimum 1 hour per week. No previous experience necessary.

We are looking for volunteers to offer Literacy support for students from a non-English speaking background, VCAL students, and years 10, 11 students who need additional support.

A grounded and mature volunteer would be suitable. Volunteers need to be proficient in English. We are seeking people who are 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.

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.

If you are looking to make a difference in a young person’s life, apply now.
