The AHVISE program is a Volunteer based program.
This means that the AHVISE registered tutors are not paid for their time, however, Aussie Helpers Charity (who founded and run the AHVISE program) provide Volunteers with up to $1,500 travel reimbursements in order to provide the tutoring to families.
The AHVISE Volunteers consist mostly of retired teachers, but also others with people with appropriate experience who would like to spend time helping isolated students with their education and learning in general.
Students may have specific needs, such as reading and mathematics; or perhaps behavioral issues where the parents may be having difficulty relating to their own children; or where students are studying at secondary level. Secondary teachers mainly work with upper primary students who are soon to make the transition to boarding or secondary school.
Sometimes a family needs the help of a non-teacher called an Angel.
Angels can assist by helping and supporting the child and family needs outside of the school room, whether it be helping around the house, in the kitchen, perhaps helping with a younger sibling, or a medical emergency etc. Most tutors’ partners become Angels and are able to help about on the station as well, which is ideal if they have mechanical knowledge and they enjoy helping out and fixing things. Or maybe they are just a good handyman, or gardener, who just wants to help others.
AHVISE is an educational support program consisting of volunteer tutors (usually retired) who want to make a difference by helping Australian farming families. The volunteers can provide the tutoring in person on the family’s property OR they can provide the tutoring online (eg. Skype). Most tutors however do choose to visit the farm property to provide the tutoring as they make the “staycation” part of a larger adventure and it is a “win win” for everyone involved!
Would you like to get involved?
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 the Australian farming community learn more and grow with a better education, then we’d love to hear from you.
You can also DONATE via our website here, this helps us immensely as we have no Government funding or financial support, the AHVISE program only exists due to the support and kindness of our many Volunteers and the donations we have received thus far, and due to Aussie Helpers ensuring it exists and continues to grow at a rapid rate.
We are prepared to do what it takes to make the AHVISE program work in 2019 and beyond, which was our goal when we started out.
We believe in and support our farming families as best we can – Because they are the backbone of our beautiful country!
