Why pay for volunteering?
From time to time we are asked “Why am I paying for volunteering”, and our response is that you are not in fact paying to volunteer! Our programs provide a unique opportunity for kids, their families and school peers to connect and learn more about other communities through volunteering.
In addition to helping those in need by volunteering their time, participants engage in an interactive Kids Giving Back educational session. These sessions are characterized by the principles of Education Action and Reflection, which are the hallmark of all our programs.
Kids Giving Back is a Not-for-Profit charity, and each program incurs costs – materials and ingredients, staff, space rental and any number of incidental expenses. Any profit that is made goes directly back into the organisation to provide more opportunities for young people, their families and schools, to fulfil our mission of Creating the Next Generation of Generosity.
In addition to our programs, you may also be aware of the volunteering opportunities that we post on behalf of our charity partners – you’ll find these on our website and Facebook. Our limited program profits also go toward this service that benefits the charities whose mission we are supporting, as well of course as impacting the young people volunteering, and ultimately society as a whole. That’s our Triple Impact!
Kids Giving Back runs a very modest outfit, and our tiny team remains committed to offering volunteering opportunities that enable kids to make a difference and connect with community through volunteering.
With huge gratitude for joining us on our mission of Creating the Next Generation of Generosity – we’re all in this together.
