Duot Yong volunteered to be a Community Learning
Champion because he wanted to improve awareness in the
South Sudanese community about the range of services and
training to help people find good jobs.

‘Learning doesn’t just happen in a classroom. Whenever you
encounter a new situation, experience a challenge or have
an interaction with someone new you are learning. And it’s
your approach and attitude that determines how much you
learn.

Elma Khan was selected and trained as a Champion in February this year: “For people my age, I let people know about lectures or talks related to things like mental health. For older people, I let them know about opportunities to learn more about what they’re interested in which is usually healthcare, nutrition and dealing with physical problems.”

Mix & Mingle : Volunteering

It was great to see such a fantastic turnout to our Mix & Mingle Information session about volunteering. Volunteering is a great way to build skills for employment, make connections and give back to your community.
Thanks to our guest speakers Samira, Tewodros, The Huddle, Spectrum MRC and Flemington Community Centre (Moonee Valley City Council.)

Joanne: Goodbye & Good Luck!

Today is the last day at NMLL for our manager, Joanne Goodman. Joanne started at NMLL 21 years ago as an English teacher, when NMLL was just 2 English classes and the adult students had to sit on tiny chairs at the local primary school.
NMLL has grown so much since then, and our students and community now have access to a modern computer room, iPads and full sized chairs. One of our students Moon, summed up how so many people feel about Joanne –
“From my heart I want to say thank you.
Jo has always been helpful and kind… Although she is very busy, she still helps me.
Every day I pass her office and she always smiles and waves.
Her smiling face makes me feel very happy.
This school is very beautiful now because of Jo’s hard work.”
Thank you Joanne for your dedicated service to the local community. We wish you the very best.
