Information for Volunteering

The Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod is run by the wonderful support of volunteers who assist the organising committee.

In order to volunteer, you are required to obtain a Working With Children Check card from the victorian Department of Justice. The check is free for volunteers. Part of the application process involves having your photo taken at a post office which is free for volunteers.

If you already have a card, you will need to update your details by logging in to the MyCheck site, and specifically tell them that you are going to work with us, by providing them with following details of our organisation:

Name of organisation: Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod Traralgon Inc.
Address:11-13 Breed St, Traralgon, Vic, 3844
Phone Number:(03) 5174 2335

Once you have updated your details, please advise us via e-mail at and include your Working with Children Check card number.

There are a few exemptions for needing to obtain a WWCC card, which you can read about on the WWCC website, however you will still be required to tell us the basis on which you are claiming an exemption, and we need to record it on our files. For example, if you are a registered teacher or registered early childhood teacher, you are exempt, but we will require a copy of your teacher registration/card for our records.
