About the Program

Join our Inspiring Community Volunteering Program and have the chance to experience all of our community based volunteer projects – during your 6 week experience you will be helping local Pre-school children to develop important skills; giving local children the chance to develop their love of sports; and assisting with a number of community empowerment projects.

Community Outreach

Assist with projects aimed at empowering locals and targeting the main areas of concern in the local community – health, education and nutrition.

Projects will include conducting social surveys and health screening; assisting with food security projects like vegetable gardens, eco-friendly greenhouses, and our pop-up soup kitchen; assisting with after-school programs; helping at an elderly care centre; and running a weekly recycling exchange initiative for children- a full and varied experience!

Preschool Teaching

As a Pre-school volunteer you will provide much needed teaching support and manpower to underprivileged pre-schools.  You will also help to ensure that these schools are a safe and inspiring place to learn by assisting with renovating and maintaining school facilities and developing teaching resources

Sports Coaching

Through our Sports Program you will help keep children active and healthy; and help them to develop important social skills. We believe sports provides a positive outlet for children, steering them away from the negative influences in life.
