To achieve its mission, Be Kids welcomes help from dedicated people in Australia and around the world. We are always on the lookout for inspired individuals who will donate their time to help promote the organisation’s work and raise funds. We also encourage special volunteers to take part in Be Kids projects by living with local communities and sharing knowledge and skills.
There are many opportunities to make a difference - we are especially interested in those with skills in teaching, media, community work, cooking, carpentry or any other trade.
In order to take part in a project, volunteers should contact Be Kids at least six months in advance and will need to meet our assessment criteria. Matters for consideration will be the type of project, the number of people, seasons, school terms and accommodation availability.
While Be Kids provides accommodation, volunteers are expected to pay for their own airfares, insurance and local transport. Be Kids only uses its funds for direct benefit to its projects.
Each project undertaken by Be Kids depends on fund-raising for its successful implementation. Be Kids members are at the very heart of our fund-raising endeavours.
We welcome volunteers to take part in our fund-raising events in Australia – our annual Dinner Dance and our annual Be Kids Community Fair. We also support your efforts to organise fund-raising activities among your friends or at work and name Be Kids as your beneficiary.
You can also volunteer your time by selling merchandise made by our members or communities in which we work.
