About this opportunity
Ucan2 recognises the need to provide additional support for young people (16-24 years) who are newly arrived to Australia and from a refugee or migrant background. Ucan2 is a partnership between AMES Australia, the Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) and Foundation House. The CMY component is delivered with the support of committed and passionate volunteers who encourage and support young people through group activities.
What are the time commitments?
Ucan2 runs one day a week, for 16-18 weeks, at multiple sites across Melbourne. Volunteers attend their allocated site on the same day of the week - Tuesdays in Croydon - for approximately 2.5 hours in the afternoon, during allocated times between 12.15pm- 3.45pm.
*Please note: exact session times and site allocation cannot be confirmed until close to the start of the semester.
What do Ucan2 volunteers do?
Through a variety of group activities, Ucan2 Volunteers: share their work, study and life experiences in Australia; act as positive role models, help young people practice English; and, help foster young people’s confidence to make social connections and develop their skills.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for people who: can commit for a semester (16-18 weeks); are interested in building social connections and sharing their experiences; can provide support to young people; and interested in doing this in a culturally sensitive, welcoming, positive and non-judgemental manner.
