Youth Changemakers

Paving a pathway for lifelong volunteering

We believe it’s important for children to acquire a volunteering spirit from a young age. But more than that, we want to help them carry it through to their teenage and adult years.

That’s why we created our Youth Changemakers Program.

Designed for teens aged 14 to 18, Youth Changemakers exists to help you, help others. In your own time. And your own way.

Why become a Youth Changemaker?

Funded by the Kirby Foundation, our Youth Changemakers Program will connect you to a diverse range of volunteering opportunities.

Through this program, you’ll get to:

  • Give back by engaging with and actively contributing to the community
  • Get important job skills and identify areas of interest for future career opportunities
  • Have a say in what, where and when you want to volunteer
  • Build friendships with people who share your values and interests
