Calling all superheroes-in-waiting! If you want to help children and young people reach their true potential, we want to hear from you.
How can you help us make a difference?

training and support to help you feel confident in your role
ongoing professional development sessions with knowledgeable guest speakers

the opportunity to play an important part in a young person’s education journey
Who are we?
Ardoch is a national children’s education charity, working hard to improve educational outcomes for children and young people in communities experiencing disadvantage by providing vital learning and wellbeing resources and activities.
What do we do?
We train and mobilise volunteers to schools and early learning centres, with a focus on building strong foundations of education such as literacy and numeracy. We broaden horizons for children by providing access to excursions and inspiring learning experiences.
Basically, we’re showing up for the kids who need our help the most.
This opportunity involves volunteering for 2 hours a week. You will work with students at the same time and at the same school each week, for a minimum of 6 months.
Not living in Melbourne? No worries. We are in need of volunteers in Geelong, Greater Dandenong, Frankston, Hume, Wyndham, Melbourne’s Western Region and Melbourne's North, so there are sure to be opportunities to help schools in your local community.
Opportunities are in primary and secondary schools in Sydney’s western and south western suburbs.
