Welcome to AHVISE!
We are an educational volunteer organisation run by Aussie Helpers, comprising of a dedicated team of volunteers from all around Australia, who enjoy to give to others. We support rural and remote outback families who are looking for help in their remote school rooms. These include families, mothers and fathers, who teach their own children at home due to their geographic isolation.
If you haven’t already registered with AHVISE, you can do so today!
Click on the “SIGN UP” button on the top hand side of our website.
You can join as a volunteer, or a family.
If you are a farming family with kids who could use some extra help with their education, or if you are a teacher, tutor or angel who wants to help kids in our farming community learn more, and grow with a better education, then we’d love to hear from you.
We do background checks on all the volunteers and after you sign up you can enter a PLACEMENT AD – which we then check and publish for all registered volunteers to apply for, if your placement meets their preferences, location etc.
When a volunteer applies someone from our office will contact you and try to work out if that volunteer is a good fit. If it is a good fit, then we lock that placement is as “filled” and take down your placement ad. You can place as many ads as you like, to suit your child’s educational support required.
The volunteer will travel to your home (wherever you are in Australia) and normally they have their own transport, like a caravan, but some volunteers will prefer to stay on your property, maybe you have a spare room, or small home for visitors etc.
Normally families provide food for the duration of the volunteers stay, but all these details can be worked out when the time comes.
If you are a person who loves helping others and have teaching background then you will fit in with our fantastic team of volunteers!
Farmers don’t like to admit when things are tough, and they are some of the proudest and most resilient people in Australia. But sometimes they need our help, especially for their wonderful kids!
You will be required to formally “REGISTER” by clicking on SIGN UP – and once logged in, you will be asked to complete more questions about your experience, references, preference for ages of children you can tutor, etc.
You will be asked to upload a copy of your current Photo ID like a drivers licence, and at some point (prior to attending any placement) you will have to supply a Blue Card (for QLD) or the relevant “Working with Child” check ID. All this information and more, will be available on your AHVISE profile dashboard once you have registered as a Volunteer.
Got Questions, we’ve got answers. You can always check the FAQ page on our website HERE.
Once you are registered you will have access to a more comprehensive “Training HUB” plus access to the “Financial HUB” for volunteer expenses refunds by AHVISE, and for families we ask a $500 donation towards the cost of your tutors. If volunteers request more than $500, Aussie Helpers provides up to $1,500 in total for travel cost refunds. If you have any questions about the financials, please contact our support (see below options).
