The Best Child Protection Volunteer Opportunities
For more than 65 years, Save the Children have been working in Australia to deliver programs that focus on the care and protection of children. We create positive, long-term change for children who are facing complex life situations. All our child protection programs focus on three key outcomes:
- Helping children participate in and become engage with learning.
- Providing families with safe, positive and supportive home environments.
- Creating safe, strong and connected communities for children and young people.
