Become an Ethics Teacher

kindy student quote for webDo something life-changing this year and become a volunteer ethics teacher. You’ll be rewarded with a unique learning and development opportunity while supporting children to think logically, disagree respectfully and use evidence and reasoning to make decisions rather than act out of habit or peer pressure. Teach ethics and you’ll be helping children develop important skills for life. 

If you have a genuine rapport with children and a keen interest in learning, and are available to run a short class at a set time each week, then ethics teaching may be the volunteer opportunity for you.
