Volunteer

Together we can change lives

Become a volunteer support coach to our scholars

Our dedicated volunteers are the backbone of what we do. We simply could not exist without them. We have over 100 people who regularly volunteer their time and expertise to support scholarship recipients. 

It is our HMEF Support Coaches that truly make our scholarship unique. They support our girls to overcome barriers to success and imagine a future beyond their current experience. Discover more below.

How you can get involved!

As a support coach to our scholars

We provide coaching support for each scholarship recipient. Students from disadvantaged backgrounds often have limited access to role models or mentors beyond their parents or teachers. Often with lower levels of education or limited work histories themselves, many of these parents or carers can find it difficult to talk about the range of opportunities available for the future.

Students are matched with a supportive adult who becomes their coach. All coaches are screened, inducted and then carefully matched with a student according to the student’s career aspirations and interests. Coaches will contact scholars no less than once a month to discuss:

  • Academic progress
  • Career aspirations
  • Tertiary education aspirations
  • Subject selection
  • Use of scholarship tools
  • General attitude towards education
