About this opportunity
The VoRTCS program is always looking for eager and enthusiastic new volunteers to assist newly settled refugee families in Brisbane.
We are looking for volunteers located all over Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich to tutor local families.
As a volunteer, you will need to attend a one day VoRTCS Family Tutor Information and Training Session and complete National Criminal History and Working with Children (Blue Card) checks.
Volunteers work in teams of three or more and visit the same family each week for approximately 90 minutes. Tutoring occurs Monday to Friday after 3:30pm or anytime during Saturday or Sunday (depending on your tutoring preferences).
No special skills or experience is needed, just the willingness to give your time and share the everyday knowledge and skills you’ve gained living in Australia.
Volunteers are required to be over 16 years of age, have good English language skills and need to be able to commit to tutoring with the program for a minimum of 12 months (due to the sensitive nature of the volunteer role & consistency and stability for our VoRTCS refugee families).
