YMCA Victoria is an Australian Childhood Foundation accredited child safe organisation, and we are committed to safeguarding children and young people in our care. We require all people applying to volunteer to undergo a screening process prior to appointment, and successful applicants must comply with the YMCA’s Safeguarding Children and Young People Framework. Successful applicants will also be required to undergo a police check, hold a valid working with children check, and will receive training relevant to their volunteer role.

Upcoming volunteer opportunity

Kinship Care Camp Volunteer

Kinship Care Camps are for families who care for a child under a kinship care arrangement. Often the young people that attend these camps with their carers are considered vulnerable, disadvantaged or at risk. A large part of volunteering on Kinship Care Camps is about creating connections with these young people and supporting them over the weekend, as well as supporting their incredible carers. This weekend camping experience gives families an opportunity to relax, unwind and connect with other families who look just like theirs, as well as sharing experiences, knowledge and resources.
