Driving teacher volunteers required!
While you're looking for work, boost your confidence and support newly arrived adult learner drivers by becoming a volunteer!
Whittlesea Community Connections are looking for volunteers to support adult migrants and refugees with supervised driving practice to acquire their probationary driving licence.
Gaining a licence helps community members to establish independence, access essential services and employment opportunities, and fully participate in their local community.
To be eligible to volunteer you must:
- Be 25 years and above
- Hold a Victorian licence with no restrictions
- Be able to work with people from diverse backgrounds and able to offer two hours a week for six months
- Have a willingness to volunteer.
Training and support is provided to volunteers. Whittlesea Community Connections pays for professional lessons for the learners first, so volunteers will not be getting in a car with a brand new learner.
Arabic and Farsi speakers will be preferable as the clients mostly speak these languages.
