Volunteering with the VCE Summer School (VCESS) is a great way to get involved with the University community, help young people and have a great time in January.

VCESS is a two-week program from the 11th-22nd of January (in 2021) designed to give high school students from a wide range of backgrounds a boost with their final years of school. It’s run by university students and we need you to be involved – whether tutoring a class or helping out with our Special Roles.

Tutoring a class involves 6 hours of class time over the two weeks; joining one of the Special Role teams can involve a variety of commitments outlined in the position descriptions at the VCE Summer School website.
