AWLQ’s Teen Volunteering Program is open to teens aged 13 – 17, who love animals and are considering volunteering at our AWLQ Gold Coast Rehoming Centre.
Participants will be guided through the daily animal care routines for our cats, dogs and small animals in preparation for what will be required of them as a volunteer in the future.
The program is run by fully qualified staff and trainers at the Gold Coast Rehoming Centre (located at Coombabah).
As you can imagine, scheduling our limited staff, resources, training new volunteers, logistics and capacity to manage this 1-day process can be very time-consuming. As a result, we ask for a $70 administration fee to cover the costs of training, WHS, insurance and a dedicated staff member to train the students for the day. We thank you for your contribution to cover these costs.
Please note that applicants under the age of 13 will not be accepted.

The next Teen Volunteer Program will be not be considered until closer to the September/October Queensland School Holidays. The running of this course will be dependent on teen volunteer positions available. Please check back with us closer to the end of August 2019 for any updates.
