Volunteers are at the heart of Ardoch’s work in communities facing disadvantage. To deliver our educational programs each year, Ardoch places more than a thousand volunteers in schools and early years centres throughout Australia to help support the educational needs of vulnerable children.

The positive impact our programs are having for thousands of children each year comes down to the dedication and compassion of our volunteers. To put it simply, volunteers are integral to our program delivery, bringing immense value – and a whole lot of joy – into the classrooms.

Ardoch urgently needs more volunteers to support our partner schools in communities facing educational disadvantage. Enquire Now
