VOLUNTEER TUTORS NEEDED FOR NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
Yalari a not-for-profit organization who provides scholarships to Indigenous Australian youth from regional, rural and remote communities throughout Australia to complete their secondary education at high ranking boarding schools. Yalari is looking for tutors for our Grade 7 students starting in these prestigious schools in 2015.
Yalari scholars starting their journey at boarding school require a range of support in their first year and beyond. Volunteer tutoring is a fantastic way to assist these students throughout their education. You would be required to commit to one night per week, usually for one hour during school semesters, at a location on the school premises. We are looking for generalist tutors who may have previous tutoring or teaching experience. You will need to have the ability to fit in with the parameters of the school.
This would be a great opportunity to increase your teaching skills and experience, whilst adding valuable volunteering experience to your resume.
It is NOT a paid position but you will achieve far greater benefits for sparing your time to help others.
