Volunteer Opportunities

Youth COACH

Youth COACH is a mentoring program that requires mentors to commit to helping a young person achieve their goals by improving and developing their life skills. Mentoring takes place for an hour at participating local high schools. Becoming a Youth COACH mentor enables you to make a positive contribution into a young person’s life and is a very rewarding 12-month commitment.

Time commitment:
Within School Hours
60 – 90 minutes (including travel time)

Safe Spaces

Safe Spaces for Youth is about creating an enabling environment where young people can feel safe and supported. They involve a range of activities, facilitated within a school or community context such as recreational and sports events, breakfast clubs or barbeques, or simply a drop-in space. We are looking for volunteers who enjoy hanging out and engaging with young people whether it is playing a game of basketball, cooking or simply lending a listening ear.

Time commitment:
Mornings: 7am-9am
Afternoons: 2pm-5pm

Shine & Strength Classes

We need Shine and Strength facilitators to help facilitate our Shine and Strength personal development courses that are designed to increase the young person’s ability to identify and positively respond to emotions and increase their sense of value and purpose.

Time commitment:
School Hours

Further training or instruction may be required for specific volunteering roles listed above. Under the Child Protection (Working with Children) Act 2012, you will be required to undertake a working with children check (WWCC) with the Office of the Children’s Guardian. A Working with Children Check is a prerequisite for anyone in child-related work. It involves a national criminal history check and review of findings of workplace misconduct. The Working with Children Check for volunteers does not attract a fee.
