Volunteer for KIDS
Donations of time, effort and expertise are important and valued by all those associated with our organisation. KIDS Injury and Trauma Recovery Programs rely on dedicated and talented volunteers to help deliver programs and workshops. Volunteers are people who bring a variety of skills and experiences to camp. Volunteers are generally paired with young camp participants in a buddy role for the duration of a camp. Often survivors / young participants are shy and self-conscious when they arrive, and with the support of a volunteer, their confidence grows along with their ability to connect with those around them. The words FUN, SAFE and LIFE are synonymous with KIDS Foundation programs and are also just a few of the characteristics we look for in our volunteers.
Other characteristics of KIDS volunteers include:
- High integrity
All individuals who volunteer with KIDS Foundation are required to hold a current Working With Children Check and police check.
Individuals find the experience of volunteering with KIDS Foundation rewarding and life-changing.
The KIDS Foundation is the family that everyone needs. You get as much love and support as you give and I am constantly amazed at how much this family can improve and change the lives of every person they touch.
Having volunteered with KIDS now since 2013 I have seen many kids grow and develop into strong and confident young adults, the resilience and drive these kids have after camps is inspiring. I love coming to camps and events with the KIDS/kids it's really rewarding and a highlight of my year!
Our organisation has been a supporter of KIDS Foundation since 2012. In that time, I have seen many people from our organisation touched by the KIDS family. Without doubt, I have found my personal association with KIDS to be one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. KIDS Foundation not only changes the lives of afflicted children, they change the lives of families and volunteers alike. I could not speak highly enough of the KIDS family - a family I feel very much a part of. Thank you!
