Latttitude offers end-to-end support for a volunteer’s placement. Annually we send 400 young Australians from 17-25 overseas in one of 13 countries to volunteer. We also bring in around 130 volunteers annually to Australia. We have significant support structures in place and foster an approach whereby the groups of volunteers can interact socially, both on-line and face-to-face, and provide one another with peer support.
We have been in China for 25 years and have been organizing placements in different parts of the world for 40 years. We have the capacity and the Federal Government’s approval to coordinate volunteering Teaching Assistant placements in Australian schools. Lattitude has its own Special Programs Agreement with Australian Immigration so we sponsor large numbers of visas and our program is familiar with the processing centre in Hobart. Lattitude has strong links with Australian Embassies who are supportive of the program in Australia and throughout China.
Lattitude has the capacity to organize and deliver Chinese, Japanese, German and French Language and Culture Assistants to schools as of July 2015. We do have 10 Language and Culture Assistants arriving in January but this intake has closed. Our volunteers stay for 5 months or 11 months.
