Teen Volunteering

AWLQ’s Teen Volunteering program is open to ages 13 – 17 who love animals and are considering volunteering at one of the AWLQ Rehoming Centres.

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


We are at capacity for our Teen Volunteer Program and therefore there will be no Teen Volunteer program this Easter School Holidays.

Please check June July school holidays.

Dates to be advised.
