Young People Regular - more than 6 months Parramatta NSW

About this opportunity

Are you a passionate person that could provide stability and support for a child in your community? Do you/your family have 1 day a month you could dedicate to make a positive impact in a child’s life, as well as your own?

**Let us connect you to a child in your community who needs a helping hand. **

Wesley Aunties & Uncles needs kind and compassionate volunteers who can bring connection and fun to disadvantaged children in your community.

**What’s involved? ** Face to face visits once a month at a time that suits both you (the volunteer) and the child/their family. Volunteer ‘Aunts’ & ‘Uncles’ in our program give young people the experience and benefits of a stable relationship and an extended family. Together you will do a range of fun activities and simple everyday things that expose the child to new and different activities that help build confidence, social and life skills.
