Volunteering at the Children First Foundation Retreat offers valuable experiences for many tertiary courses, such as child care, community service, social work, teaching, nursing and allied health. Some courses require students to perform a number of hours work experience as part of the course requirement, or simply to connect with the community as volunteers. We welcome enquiries from students and course coordinators.
Our staff invest a significant amount of time training and supervising students in line with their course requirements, so we ask that students commit to arrive on time and to attend on a regular basis. This enables students to get to know the children in a meaningful way, and it’s beneficial for the children to become familiar with the people caring for them.
