Volunteer with us

Share your skills to help empower Australian children in need to transform their lives through education.

Volunteers are the backbone of The Smith Family. Without them, much of the work we do would not be possible. Each year, members of the community, our corporate partners and VIEW Club members generously give their time, skills and energy to support our work with thousands of disadvantaged Australian children and their families.

Our volunteer mentors support young people who are making the challenging transition from school to work or further studies. Our volunteer tutors help students to improve their literacy skills through our Learning Clubs, or by providing basic English language skills to help refugees and new arrivals settle into their local communities. We are also assisted by a nationwide team of administration and project support volunteers who work behind the scenes to help with the day-to-day operations of The Smith Family.

What I’ve found rewarding about volunteering with The Smith Family is working with an enthusiastic group of kids who really love getting involved.
