Volunteer opportunity! – Japanese speakers

Do you want to volunteer and get a coles/Myers voucher? Do you speak Japanese? If yes, then this opportunity is for you!

Every year we are visited by physiotherapy students from Kobe College of Medical Welfare in Japan.  The students undertake a 4-day course within the discipline and learn about physiotherapy in Australia.  We also expose the students to other activities such as Australian Rules football and a tour of the wildlife reserve.  In previous years we have had La Trobe Japanese international students come and talk (10-15 mins) to the visitors about their experience studying in Australia, as well as assisting with the wildlife reserve tour.

If If you want to participate, there are two ways:

  • Talk to the students – Wednesday, August 29th from 3:30pm
  • Wildlife sanctuary tour + translation assistance on Monday 27th August (2 groups available)

1pm-2:30pm      Wildlife sanctuary tour (For Group 1)
2:30pm – 4pm   Wildlife sanctuary tour (For Group 2)

Volunteers will be provided with Coles/Myer voucher as a token of our appreciation for their time.
