Try Time is a student support program that promotes inclusion for disengaged students from diverse backgrounds.

Facilitated by Multicultural Australia (MA) and ACU staff, Try Time will consist of two separate sessions: the Skill Up program (MA) and a touch football tournament (ACU).

With support from Wynnum State High School (WSHS) and Brisbane Bayside State College (BBSC) staff, Try Time provides positive networking and social engagement opportunities for young people, while helping them develop positive self-identity in a changing adolescent landscape.

The role

Student roles in this program include assisting with the organisation and delivery of a touch football tournament, assisting with the Skill Up program (networking, job skills, and personal identity) where relevant, and helping to create a positive and welcoming environment. There will also be an expectation to attend some planning meetings.


  • Current Blue Card
  • Interview
  • Attending planning meetings where appropriate
  • Some familiarity with sport (especially touch football) is an advantage, but not essential.
