Our program offers the opportunity to interact with children and adolescents. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
50+

Unfortunately, many young people in vulnerable communities are stuck without any type of productive outlet. In most cases the kids suffer from traumatic events and need volunteers to play with them and remember that they are just kids.

We are looking for sensitive, approachable and playful individuals.                                                                                                                                            We need creative volunteers with fun ideas for activities for the kids.

Here is what you can expect:

  • Children are between the age of 3 to 15

  • You will be working with our partner community daycares and centers 

  • You will have the opportunity to create your own activities with them including: art, educational games, singing, music and much more

What the children need most of all is love and affection.
