Kids Giving Back is Australia’s leading not for profit organisation for student volunteering, offering school-aged students a diverse range of community experiences.

We deliver a ‘triple impact’ benefit: on participants, charities & society.

We forge real connections between kids and community, creating the ‘next generation of generosity’.

Through volunteering, young people develop empathy and resilience, and are guided toward leading a purposeful life.

Through our diverse proprietary programs, Kids Giving Back assists over 50 charities.

We support causes such as homelessness and poverty, intergenerational understanding, the plight of refugees and disadvantaged communities.
