Volunteer with QPASTT

 

          1.Ucan2

Ucan2 is a program delivered at TAFE to youth Australian Migrant English Program students. The program focuses on employment and education skills with a focus on emotional well-being and increasing meaningful connections.

The program has been designed by our sister agency in Victoria, Foundation House, with the aim of addressing the distinct stressors that young migrants from a refugee background experience in settlement to Australia. In emphasising social connection, Ucan2 requires a team of volunteers to participate in social network building component at this program.

Volunteers are needed to attend the weekly afternoon sessions of the 9 weeks Ucan2 program while it is being delivered.

          2.Homework Club

The Homework Club supports high school students and some tertiary students aged between 12 and 24 years old. We rely on volunteer tutors to support students in understanding, researching and completing their homework (but not doing work for students).

At all times, students should be encouraged to undertake and complete homework tasks independently. Tutors can assist students in learning how to research a homework assignment, how to understand the questions they are being asked, and how to best present their work.

You can tutor in any subject/s you feel comfortable with.

Homework Club is currently offered at two locations:

–              QPASTT Homework Club at 28 Dibley Street Woolloongabba. Tutors volunteer during the school term for one or more afternoons each week on either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between 3.00 and 5.00 pm.

–              QPASTT & MyVision Homework Club at the Inala PCYC, Swallow Street, Inala. Tutors volunteer during the school term on Thursday afternoons between 3.00 and 5.00 pm.
