Volunteer With Us

Interested in volunteering? Then we’d love to hear from you.

Volunteers play an essential role at Trinh Foundation Australia providing their time and skills to help support the people of Vietnam to acquire speech therapy capacity. TFA has created strong relationships with speech pathology clinicians and academics over the last 15 years with over 120 successful voluntary placements.

If you’re interested in experiencing the rich and vibrant culture of Vietnam while providing assistance to speech therapy graduates, students, and other professionals then please fill out the expression of interest form below.

This will help us to understand your professional experience, area of specialty, and availability. Our friendly volunteer team will get back to you to discuss which options may suit you best.

At present, our volunteer programs require a minimum of 4 weeks in country. Can’t get to Vietnam? No problems! We also offer a range of online mentoring programs as well!

A bit about you?

  • An experienced speech pathologist with at least 4 years post university clinical experience
  • Experience in student supervision (use of COMPASS) and in mentoring junior speech pathologists
  • Specialist areas of interest & experience (e.g. autism, adult swallowing, ABI/TBI etc)
  • Experience working with interpreters is desirable

If you’re a speech pathologist who is not based in Australia – but have the required certification and experience, we still want to hear from you!

Volunteer roles can look like:

  • work with patients in your area of expertise, supervising and mentoring the Vietnamese speech and language therapy students and graduates in their workplaces.
  • contribute to the continuing professional development of the Vietnamese speech therapy graduates by presenting seminars, lectures, and clinical teaching in your area.
  • Work with teachers, carers, and other professionals to help children and adults with disabilities.

Placement times are scheduled around university schedules, this means that we would offer volunteers specific dates for their placement.

Once we have specific dates for in country opportunities, we will be in touch and ask for more information; including CV, referee reports, police checks and evidence of professional membership if relevant.
