Do you want something new in your life?
Do you enjoy the company of young people?
Are you the kind of person who has all the time in the world to just actively listen without critical comment?
You may be able to help a young person when you really get to know them.
Volunteer mentors are welcome as members of the Academy.
Enjoy the cruise while spending as much time as possible with our students as helpers to the Academy Master. Your tenure as a mentor will be regularly reviewed in discussion with Academy Masters and the Principal. Your cabin will be on Academy deck and you will share meals with students at NO cost to you except your time and attention to student needs as assistants to Academy Masters. You are at liberty to mix with other passengers on the understanding that your focus is on helping and being a friend to Academy students.
You will have access to cruise passenger dining and the bars on a fee for service basis so long as your focus remains on student wellbeing.
Social Security benefits are maintained for approved volunteering, especially if your helping involves some accredited training, eg care services or youth work skills. Academy may be able to arrange fee-free training if you are over 50 and on Centrelink benefits.
You are invited to chat with Academy Principal about volunteering that will enable you to enjoy cruising with us as a youth mentor, a good listener and friend for our young trainees. Think about what skills and knowledge you can bring and share with Academy members. There is no specific requirement.
Phone or SMS Principal on 0418 836 137 to arrange a time for a chat about this opportunity.
