Change someone's life

Volunteer with us

Volunteering can change lives

Volunteers are vital to helping eligible migrants and refugees practise English, learn about the Australian way of life and connect to the local community. This provides them with a strong foundation to successfully integrate into Australian society. 

As a volunteer, you will be fully supported and get the opportunity to

  • help new Australians learn English and settle into the Australian community 
  • meet new people from a wide range of backgrounds, including  
    students and other staff members 
  • develop new interpersonal skills 
  • learn about other cultures 
  • become part of a dynamic and committed volunteer team

Melbourne AMEP will provide you with free training. You don’t need to be a teacher, speak another language or have any qualifications to become a tutor. To find out more, download the documents at the bottom of the page.

Register your interest to become a volunteer today, and we will contact you about the next steps.

What does a Volunteer Tutor do? 

You will tutor a student one-on-one for 1-2 hours a week in the home, or before or after class at an AMEP centre or in a local library. This may include learning English to navigate appointments, gain employment or to make connections in the community. 

You will be provided with training and ongoing support from the VTS Team throughout your involvement.

We used to meet at his home, then we started learning about public transport. Now he is confident enough to catch the bus and I wait for him at the bus stop...from there we walk to the local market.
