Volunteering with Ardoch Youth Foundation
GSA is proud to offer graduate students volunteering opportunities with the Ardoch Youth Foundation.
By volunteering with Ardoch, you can develop mentoring skills and demonstrate your ability to work well in a team, while giving back to our local community.
Through the Numeracy Buddies program, you will be paired with a student at a local primary school. As their “Big Buddy”, you will mentor your Little Buddy in mathematics via an online platform. You will help them solve problems and coach them through finding the answers.
In order to participate in this program, you must be willing to undertake a training program and have (or get) a valid Working With Children check.
The time commitment required amounts to around 1 hour per fortnight throughout school terms, and you will have the opportunity to meet your buddy on Parkville campus towards the end of the year.
Applications for the Ardoch Numeracy Buddies program are not open yet for 2019, but stay tuned for announcements.
