Volunteering with The Water Well Project

Want to volunteer with us?

Volunteers are well supported by The Water Well Project’s Health Educators and Project Coordinator. We ask that volunteers commit to facilitating a minimum of three sessions per year.

We require all prospective volunteers to attend a compulsory induction session prior to becoming active volunteers with our organisation. The induction will tell you more about what we do and the impact of your volunteering efforts. If you are an eligible healthcare professional volunteer and would like to join our volunteering team in providing health education sessions to communities from migrant, refugee and asylum seeker background, please register to attend our next induction below.

You will learn about our organisation The Water Well Project and what we’re about, how you can contribute as a healthcare professional facilitator and some tips around how to facilitate interactive education and work effectively with an interpreter.
