About this opportunity

The YMCA Schools' Breakfast Program aims to provide children who miss out on breakfast with a free nutritious breakfast to kick start their day and a real chance in the classroom.

The position requires Volunteers between the approx. times of 7:30am - 9:00am one or two mornings a week (during school terms). This is a fantastic opportunity to get along side school students and make a positive difference in their lives.

Your involvement will have a long term impact on the students. With results and outcomes which you may never fully realise or get to see, but which are life changing for the students and ultimately the future of our community.
