Join our volunteer Team
Volunteering is an excellent way of making a difference in your local community. Throughout our history, we have been extremely fortunate having the support of an enthusiastic and dedicated volunteer base. Without the skills, interests and energy of our volunteers, we could not provide our community programs and continue to expand our work to help disadvantaged communities.
There are a range of ways to get involved with Kids First, and we start by matching your skills, experience and areas of interest with available roles. In volunteering with us, you will meet some great people and have a lot of fun while making a difference in the community.
Who can volunteer?
Volunteers are a vital part of our organisation. We encourage people of all ages, who have a broad range of life experiences, and represent a diverse cross-section of our multicultural community, to become a volunteer.
