“Both research and wisdom show us that regardless of the adversity they face, if a child can develop and maintain a positive attachment to school, and gain an enthusiasm for learning they will do so much better in their lives.”

Alongside our students and their families, our volunteers are the heart of our programs. It is their effort and inspiration that has propelled this organisation into itsmany years of operation, bringing much needed learning support and social connections to hundreds of students of a disadvantaged background.
We would love you to come on board and meet the ERCRS community. ERCRS is committed to providing training, on-the-go support, and a positive atmosphere for all volunteers in the organisation. All volunteers who work in our learning support programs can apply to attend any of the social activities (camps/excursions/events) throughout the year.
If you are interested in applying for a position as a Volunteer Tutor or Mentor, please submit the required information. You will then be invited to attend a volunteer training session, which preclude any involvement or 'sign-up' to the programs and function purely as an introduction to the organisation, our programs and the role of tutor/mentor.
Please note that the minimum commitment for volunteers in our programs is one school term (10 weeks) for tutors, and 2 school terms for mentors (20 weeks). This is so rapport can be built with our students and meaningful connections can be formed.
