Be a part of our College Community - we would love your help
There are many ways parents, family members and carers can become involved at St Joseph's College, from our wonderful Canteen Volunteers who help with serving and preparing lunches, to our parents who lend us a hand at College events, perhaps cook a spare meal for our Care Group or inspire future generations by helping our Careers Centre.
The Men's Association is a great way for dads or male carers to get involved with working bees - followed by a BBQ!
Volunteering is also a great way to make some new connections with fellow parents and have some fun! If you think you could share some of your time or experience with us - we would love to hear from you.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help out at the College in 2018. If you think you have what it takes to donate some of your time, we would love to see you here at St Joseph's.
Working with Children Check
As of 2018, all volunteers who are working at the College at any time, must have a current Working With Children Check. This is for the wellbeing of all of our students. If you have an existing WWCC card for your work this can also be used to volunteer, if you do not have a current WWCC then you can apply for one for free: http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/home/applications/
Watch the video below on how to apply for your Working With Children Check card. Cards will be required to be carried at all times when volunteering at the College.

Our canteen relies on our volunteers to help serve over 1600 hungry boys! Helpers are placed on a roster and come along about once per month from 10.30am - 1.45pm to help with preparation and serving of student lunches. This volunteer support is greatly appreciated and it ensures that our canteen continues to run independently. The helpers, have the opportunity to get to know one another and have fun, with many catch ups between recess and lunch.Fill out the form below if you would like to be a Canteen Volunteer in 2018.

It is not just the Canteen that needs a hand throughout the year, you can also lend a hand by joining the fun with the Parents & Friends, music & band, careers, library, first aid immunisation support, drama, care group, admin support and Heritage Centre! It may as simple as helping out to setup an event, or perhaps have a chat to students about your career, sewing a costume or helping cook a meal. Every little bit helps and is all greatly appreciated, so come along and give it a go - lots of new friendships have been made by lending a hand.

One for the weekend warriors! A roster system operates in which a team of volunteers work on one Sunday morning per month from 9.00-11.00am, followed by refreshments. This group further develops new friendships between fathers, in some cases grandfathers of students, as well as past students of the College.
The working bees are a great opportunity for fathers to become involved in College life, the projects they work on are many and varied and do not just include 'cleaning up the garden'.
