Jabiru Community College (JCC) is an independent, non-government school that provides a flexible, personalised education experience for young people in years 10, 11 and 12 who have been previously disengaged from mainstream education/training.

Members of the College work hard to build a community in which all learners can explore their hopes and aspirations and develop lifelong learning skills.  At JCC we believe that powerful, transferable learning happens when learners are enabled to explore their passions and interests with others and develop their personal agency.

Our learning community strives to live out the principles of Respect, Relationships, Responsibilities, Rights and Reflection.

The role

Volunteer Community Builders work with JCC college staff to help build the safe, welcoming and joyful learning community that we are striving for. The key tasks our volunteers will undertake will be:

  • Working alongside staff and young to prepare (and tidy up after) breakfasts for students who arrive before 10am
  • Helping to set up games/activities for students to engage in before school and during our lunch breaks.
  • Providing one-on-one support to students working on a variety of inquiry-based or literacy/numeracy projects.

When and where

Mondays to Fridays between 9am and 12:30 during school terms. Volunteers who wish to stay for a full day (until 2:30pm) are most welcome.
