You may sit with a student during a class, explaining terms and requirements so they can more easily keep up. Or you may help students meet their homework requirements, making sure they understand what is being asked of them, explaining any questions that might be challenging and generally supporting the students as they transition to life in Australia. We hold some adult classes in library environments or similar if the need is there.
Mercy Connect volunteers usually work with students during school hours and the volunteer commitment is for approximately three hours per week for school terms. Experience working in an educational setting is not essential as you will receive on-going training and support. Initial training for new volunteers. A current Working with Children Check and Police Check or VIT registration is required to volunteer with this project.
