Volunteers

Introduction

The Horizons College Volunteer Program utilises the skills and experience of community members to assist our young people in achieving their learning, employment and life goals.

 

We are seeking volunteers from all walks of life to assist with the operation of the College. This assistance may come in the form of:
  • providing assistance in the classroom
  • one-on-one assistance with students
  • administrative assistance
  • assistance in groundskeeping and/or maintenance
  • other areas of specialty that you may suggest
We would love to hear from anybody who would be interested in contributing at the school. You may be:
  • undertaking formal study in education, youth work, social work, community services, psychology or a related discipline
  • undertaking formal study in business services or administration
  • looking to gain valuable work experience in any of these areas
  • a retiree or community minded individual looking to contribute to a worthwhile cause.

We have hosted numerous University and TAFE students for their formal practicum placements in past years, and are happy to engage in these placements in the future.

Whoever you are, we would love to talk to you about how you can contribute to our mission of creating a meaningful educational experience for our young people.

  • Be interested in working with young people (for the in-classroom tasks)
  • Be willing to adhere to all College policies and procedures
  • Be willing to complete the application and screening process
  • Be dependable and consistent in meeting the time commitments
  • Have a current Blue Card (suitability for working with young people).  
Once you have contacted us to express your interest in this program, there is a simple screening process that you are required to undertake.
This is similar to playing pokies or free pokies online from pokies websites
. This process includes:
  • attending an initial meeting with the Horizons College Principal
  • reference checks (two references)
  • Blue Card screening (free of charge)
  • criminal history check
  • attending a short general induction training session.
If you would like to learn more about this worthwhile opportunity, please contact us via the “Contact Us” function in the right sidebar. You can also email us via admin@horizonscollege.qld.edu.au or phone via 5428 0104.

Prac Placements: Horizons College would be happy to speak to University, College and TAFE course coordinators looking to source meaningful practicum placements for their students.
