Ardoch is a charity that provides education support for children and young people experiencing disadvantage.
We deliver tailored education and wellbeing programs that address barriers to education by providing vital learning and wellbeing resources and activities. We develop skills in the basic foundations of education such as literacy and numeracy. We broaden horizons for children by providing access to excursions and inspiring learning experiences. We mobilise volunteers to support students in schools and early childhood centres. We advocate for change so that key issues such as inequities in Australia’s education system are at the forefront.
Ardoch works with thousands of children and young people in schools and early childhood centres in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia. We achieve this by linking schools, corporate organisations and communities to support programs and activities to assist schools, children and their families.
All volunteering takes place within COVID safe guidelines.
Vision Every child’s potential is realised through full participation in education.
The Role: Volunteers support teachers in the classroom (K-2) with activities such as reading, writing and basic numeracy. Volunteers work with either half of the class in small groups or 1:1 with selected children.
