FAQs about Volunteering
You can come in for a day, or you can volunteer for days or weeks if you’d like.
There are different things you can volunteer for in one day:
- You can sponsor the Food Sharing Program, feeding 400-500 children.
- You can arrange a birthday party for yourself or a family member, for as many children as you’d like. We will invite the number and age group of children you have decided on. You can help cook the food to be served or arrange for a food provider (ex. Jollibee or McDonalds) to bring in the food – even with their mascot, if you like. You can arrange the games and bring giveaways for the children.
For those staying in for longer volunteer periods, you can book an aircon room with WiFi and stay at the Rise Above Community Center while volunteering. If you plan to stay there for days or weeks, we ask for a CV to get to know you so we can work out a good schedule and activities fit for you. You can teach music, dance, arts and crafts, sports, etc.
