For Volunteers

COVID-19 and our work

In the interests of public health for both our volunteers and the schools we serve, we have made the decision not to deliver any school workshops until the COVID-19 epidemic has passed. However, this does not mean we are stopping our efforts to deliver interactive educational workshops to regional students in Australia. Instead, we have decided to focus on developing workshops that can be delivered online.

We are currently seeking volunteers who are interested and willing to help us design online workshops that are ideal for schools that sit outside our geographical range. In particular, we are looking for three types of contributors (see below).

Workshop Ideas/Concepts – if you have a few ideas around online delivery of workshops that you wouldn’t mind sharing with us, we’d love to hear from you! If we’re thinking of taking it further, we’ll get in touch and see if you’d like to take part in helping with the design too!

Workshop Designer – if you’re interested in having a bit more responsibility and are interested in developing educational material, we’d love to have a chat and see what you’d be interested in working on 🙂

Workshop Tester – if we’re making new workshops, we’re going to need feedback! If you’re interested in testing our workshops and giving us feedback on how we can improve our offerings, please let us know and we can add your name to our list of workshop testers!

If you’re interested in helping out, let us know via this form!
