AWARE’s Education volunteering program is for anyone interested in training and education with a passion for wildlife and the environment. AWARE’s education sessions are run for students in school, as well as youth groups, scout/guide groups and volunteers will work under the guidance of a Committee Member and are responsible for the following tasks:

  • Set up of education sessions and equipment.
  • Presenting talks and information to students on various topics.

Some training is provided for this role however you will need to arrange travel to and from the events as well as our primary wildlife shelter in Langwarrin to collect and drop off educational materials.

PLEASE NOTE: As we often volunteer in schools and scout groups you would be required to obtain a Working With Children Check (WWCC). This can be obtained online and is free to volunteers. Follow this link for additional details.

The WWCC is free to volunteers although if you already have one from a workplace you can have AWARE added. Once you apply online you will be required to attend at a  post office so they can see your ID in person and to have a photo taken. This is still at NO COST.

AWARE’s postal address is PO Box 4054 Frankston Heights 3199. You will need this information for the online form. Please apply ASAP unless you already have one as it takes between 2 and 3 weeks for the Check to be processed.
