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 the Greater Melbourne Area. Volunteers attend their allocated site on the same day of the week (Tuesdays or Thursdays), approximately 2.5 hours in the afternoon, during allocated times between 12.15pm- 3.45pm.

Where can I volunteer?
There are a number of Ucan2 sites in the Greater Melbourne Area*
Semester 2 sites may include:
- Southeast: Dandenong, Noble Park, Hampton Park
- North: Broadmeadows, Epping, Preston,
- West: Footscray, Hoppers Crossing/Wyndham, Melton (tentative)
- East: Croydon

*Please note: delivery days and session times are confirmed by our agency partners 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.
