At AMES Australia, the role of volunteering in supporting and strengthening newly arrived communities is not only important, but essential.
What do AMES Australia volunteers do?
You will work alongside our newly arrived refugee and migrant clients and our committed and passionate staff, joining over 250 AMES Australia volunteers. Over half of our volunteers have first-hand experience of settlement or learning a new language.
As the needs of our new communities change, the range of opportunities for our volunteers is growing. Volunteers are there every step of the way. They help clients with initial settlement and language tutoring, they mentor skilled migrants and supervise vocational activities and they help at the Multicultural Hub, assisting with events and front of house.
While most of our volunteers fall in to three main groups, there are always other short-term programs available and you should discuss your skills and interests with one of our Volunteer Coordinators.
Regardless of the skills or strengths you bring with you, you can make a world of difference in the settlement journeys of our clients.
