Teen Volunteering

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 AWLQ Volunteer Department assesses the availability on a quarterly basis and if Teen Volunteer Positions are available we will schedule a Teen Volunteering Course, typically within the Qld School Holiday period.

DATES FOR THE UPCOMING teen volunteer program AT THE AWLQ GOLD COAST REHOMING CENTRE ARE:

 Due to its popularity our Teen Volunteer Program is currently at capacity and we will therefore not be running the Teen Volunteer Course this coming April during the Queensland school holiday period. The next consideration of this course will not be until the June/July Winter Holidays.

Please check back with us closer to the beginning of June 2020 for updates.
