Who are we looking for?
People from any background that want to be part of a program that encourages students to see learning as fun.
Our current band of around 40 volunteers range in age from 18 – 65 and have a broad range of skills. Our tutors work across a diverse range of industries including government, health, science and law, as well as retirees and university and TAFE students.
We look for people who are willing to work with students of different ages and abilities. The majority of students are primary school aged, but we also need tutors who like to work with older students on specific subjects such as English, maths, social studies and science.
Why volunteer with us?
Our students and their families value the one-on-one support our tutors provide while our tutors relish the connections they form with our students and fellow volunteers. We create a fun, friendly environment that encourages learning and connects our tutors through social activities and our annual fundraising event.
We help you get started through a thorough induction and the support of a buddy for your first few weeks. Once you get started we make it easy to volunteer through a flexible roster based on your availability.
Potential volunteers are asked to come along to the Club on a Wednesday night to meet
with our tutor recruiters, see how the club operates and learn what is expected of our tutors.
New volunteers usually attend 2 – 3 sessions where they are supported of an experienced volunteer. After this period, there will be a discussion to confirm that the Homework
Club is for you. At this point you join our regular roster as a fully-fledged
Collingwood Homework Club tutor. To register your interest contact us
