Volunteer

Jika Jika strives toward being a more inclusive community, and volunteers are an important part of that community. We value the contributions that volunteers bring to Jika, working alongside staff, and sharing their skills and insights into a variety of areas.

If you are interested in volunteering we have a range of job descriptions available. Please note that both a Working with Children Check and a National Police Record Check is required for each role. Jika Jika are an authorised organisation with a CVS number, and will happily assist you with obtaining these checks.

Therefore we are looking for people who have a genuine interest in assisting older persons to build on and strengthen their existing English skills.

In-home tutoring will also provide English tutors for asylum seekers who are not able to access funded programs.
