VOLUNTEERING AT THE WAC
Volunteer work is a great way to put your existing skills to use and maybe learn some new ones. Combining paid work with family responsibilities is a challenge – this may be a way to give you some work-life balance whilst remaining flexible. It's also great to have some volunteer work on your CV, if you're thinking about returning to work in the future.
At the WAC, you have the opportunity to join a team of like-minded people, giving a little of your valuable time to keep things running smoothly. Our team of volunteers is international, and our working language is English, but it's not necessary to be a native speaker. Also, no-one expects that you devote hours of your time as we all have families and other responsibilities. Many volunteer roles can be carried out from home and at times to suit yourself.
We are always in need of people to open the WAC Library, which can be for as little as half an hour a week. This involves shelving, checking out books and helping to keep things tidy. Either bring your children with you, or make use of the time whilst your kids are in class.
During the year we have several social events that also need a team of helpers to decorate, organize crafts and activities, and purchase supplies - for example Halloween, Christmas and our Summer BBQ.
If you're interested in a bigger challenge, we elect our new Board of Directors and Chairpersons each March and you could have the chance to manage a team and influence the way the WAC and Learning Tree School develop in the future. During the year, positions may still be open or become available when people move on.
