Frequently asked questions
How do I become a volunteer for The Huddle?
Apply using the application form. Prospective volunteers will need to meet the requirements outlined in the specific role descriptions and have a current Working with Children’s Check or Victorian Institute of Teaching card.
Applicants will require face-to-face interviews and reference checks. Induction and training is provided to ensure you are ready to carry out your important role with us.
I want to volunteer in a one-off or short-term capacity. Is this possible?
At the moment, we are looking for volunteers to assist with our weekly programs for a minimum of six months. We do occasionally offer one-off or short-term volunteer opportunities, which we will promote on our website.
How many hours a week does volunteering require?
Depending on the program, usually between 1.5-3 hours per week. Our programs are all held in the afternoons, so it is possible to work full-time and volunteer.
How long does the recruitment and selection process take?
The process usually takes a couple of weeks. However, all volunteers must attend a training and induction session before they begin volunteering with us. These are held once every three months.
Where are the volunteer roles based?
Volunteer roles are based in both North Melbourne and Werribee and their surrounding suburbs. Specific locations can be found in the volunteer position descriptions.
Do I need a Working with Children Check?
All volunteers must have a Working with Children Check. We can provide you with instructions on how to apply for one if you do not have one.
Who volunteers at The Huddle?
We have all kinds of volunteers, from uni students to retirees. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds (and AFL affiliations!) who fit the criteria and are passionate about engaging and empowering young people.
