Are you a friendly and sociable person with a passion for supporting young people with disabilities? Would you like to volunteer at one of our Gold Coast Vacation Care programmes?
CPL’s Vacation Care team is looking for an enthusiastic team of volunteers to have fun supporting children and teenagers with disabilities to maximise their independence, learn new skills and have fun with friends!
If you are looking to give back over the school holidays and gain real world experience supporting young people aged 6-16 years with a disability to engage with their community, express your interest in this volunteer role today!
Vacation Care opportunities will take place in three locations on the Gold Coast; Coomera, Southport Special School and Mudgeeraba Special School. You will be able to select your preferred location on application to this volunteer role.
As the Volunteer Vacation Care Assistant you will be:
