Vinnies Youth consists of camps and weekend respite and recreation programs for children and young people. They are staffed, facilitated and organised by volunteers (called “oldies”).
St Nick’s is a respite and recreation program for Young Carers aged 9-15 years. Each camp has approximately 35 kids and 15 oldies. Camps occur twice a year in the January and July school holidays for 5 days each.
St Joe’s is a respite and recreation program for vulnerable children aged 6-12 years. Each month we run a fun activity for a few hours on the weekend. The program aims to provide Young Carers with a break from their caring role and to give them an opportunity to have fun and try new things.
We are looking for volunteers who are enthusiastic and energetic, passionate about working with children and young people, and able to work as part of a team.
