Complete the online application form, which will take 15-20 minute, covers your interests and experience and will be accessible on this website when applications open.

Students getting involved

All on-time applications will be reviewed by Compass staff. Shortlisted applicants will then be contacted by e-mail/phone to arrange 30 minute interviews with Compass staff at the University of Sydney, Camperdown campus.

If you are shortlisted for an interview, you will need to bring 100 points of identification (original documents only) as well as be willing to apply for a NSW Working with Children Check - Volunteers form if selected for the program.

Compass staff will conduct referee checks of applicants after interviews.


Successful applicants must attend Compass volunteer training.

New volunteers will begin at schools after successful completion of training.
