Volunteering with Kids First Australia

Hear what our amazing volunteer coordinator had to say about all of those who give their time and skills to help make us a better place to be.


At Kids first we HEART our volunteers. It is the time, experience and enthusiasm that our volunteers provide that enables us to continue to provide our programs and services and look to the future to extend our reach to help more children and families across Victoria.

Why chose us as your volunteer partner?

Why chose us as your volunteer partner?

All of our volunteers are agents of change, working alongside our staff. Our volunteers get to see the impact they make to their community in real time. Partnering with our staff, complementing our services and programs, you will see the impact your contribution and the work Kids First provides to children and the community.

Volunteers are provided with role specific training and skill building and it’s a great way to meet like-minded people!

I enjoy volunteering at the Op Shop as it gives me a sense of connecting with fellow workers and helping to raise funds for a very worthy cause. I also like to see anything of interest in the shop for myself to purchase. Always something!"
