Every day in schools and preschools across the state a small army of volunteers donates their time to support our students and educators.
From helping kids with their reading to coaching a sports team or taking up a position on the governing council, our volunteers help in ways both small and large.
So who can be involved and how can you help?
Anyone can apply to volunteer. However, it’s always up to a site leader to choose volunteers who will work well with the local community.
Volunteers can come from all walks of life. You might be just who we need if you:
- are compassionate and kind
- care about children
- want to help young people feel confident and grow
- enjoy helping others.
You might love and want to share your passion for:
- words – big and small
- your family’s culture
- music and arts
- science, technology, engineering and maths
- books and reading
- sports, health and fitness
- gardening and food.
There are some expectations that our department has for our volunteers and our staff can help guide you through what’s involved.
If you feel you have different skills, expertise and knowledge to offer, get in contact with the site you want to help. It’s never too late to start.
