Join our volunteer team!
At Kids First we love volunteers and the incredible experience, skills and enthusiasm they bring to roles alongside our staff. Without the generosity and energy of volunteers we could not provide our range of programs or continue to expand our work across the community.
Volunteering is an excellent way of making a difference in your local community. By working with us you’re choosing an innovative and vital organisation with a range of services that are effective and accessible by anyone in the north east of Melbourne.
There are heaps of benefits for mental health and wellbeing that come with volunteering. We love this University of Sydney article that explains just some of the good ‘things’ that volunteering brings.
Who can volunteer
We encourage people of all ages, who have a broad range of life experiences, to become a volunteer.
We look for these personal attributes:
- Enthusiasm to assist people
- Reliability, honesty and commitment
- Good communication skills and flexibility
- Willingness to undergo a Police check and Working with Children’s check
In return, we offer:
- A detailed position description and volunteer agreement
- Induction, orientation and training
- Support and mentoring
- A respectful, safe and non-discriminatory environment
- An opportunity to develop additional skills and knowledge.
We currently have volunteers working across these areas of our organisation.
When you've found the opportunity for you, submit your application. We can't wait to hear from you! If you have any questions email us at [email protected] or call 9474 4819.
