Volunteer with Compass

Since 2009, Compass volunteers have been providing students at our partner schools with profound educational opportunities. They help school students with reading and homework, and deliver enriched learning experiences. Hundreds of school students across Sydney have benefited from the expertise and enthusiasm of the yellow shirted Compass volunteers.

We are seeking passionate and committed individuals to volunteer with Compass. This is your chance to take part in a program that is making a significant contribution to the wider community.

Why volunteer?

By committing only 3 hours per week, you can:

  • Make a difference in the lives and education of school students.
  • Develop valuable skills through the comprehensive volunteer training program and gain experience that employers seek.
  • Learn about the community as you become a valued member of our partner schools.
  • Have fun, meet like-minded volunteers and make new friends.
