Be a part of our College Community 

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.

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. 

What next?

In Term 4 each year we open applications for volunteers for the following year, all you need to do is fill out the form and select how you would like to help us. The form for 2018 volunteers is now closed, however don't feel you have missed out, email webnews@sjc.vic.edu.au and let us know if you would like to lend us a hand this year.  We understand that sometimes circumstances change and you are welcome at any time to let us know if you cannot make it to a volunteer opportunity. 

Mens Association

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'.
