Our Mission / Objective

Kids Giving Back provides hands-on, age appropriate, meaningful volunteering opportunities for young people ages 6 - 18. Our mission is to create the Next Generation of Generosity, our vision is to create a better more accepting society, based on empathy and understanding, one child at a time. Our work has a double impact - benefiting communities who are assisted by young people volunteering, as well as impacting young people, their school communities and families as they experience the joy and wellness benefits of giving back. At a time where the world is in crisis on so many fronts, the benefits to our young people and communities could hardly be greater.


Kids Giving Back was established in 2012, we are a non-denominational organisation and we work with schools across Greater Sydney. We have provided volunteering opportunities for over 8,000 young people and made more than 27,000 meals for homeless communities [numbers as at 12.2016]
