Local Charity Needing Local Help
Connect Kids is a fully registered charity that’s been running a very successful mentoring program for vulnerable Sunshine Coast children since 2018. We’re changing young lives for the better, and we do so without any government financial assistance at all. Demand for our program is now at an all-time high and we’re calling out for help from within our community.
Help us mentor our kids.
Many children never get the chance to experience being in a loving, caring relationship or to partake in activities that other children take for granted. Kids born into disadvantaged circumstances, without intervention, often repeat the cycle and fail to reach their full potential as adults.
As a mentor, you can be their positive role model and guide them on a journey towards a happier, healthier life.
All we ask is that our mentors spend a couple of hours per fortnight with a child from a tough background, at the beach or a park, on an outing, playing sport or going for a walk through nature. Two hours truly does make a difference.
We currently have around 30 kids needing mentors. To become a Connect Kids mentor please give us a call on 0424 670 892 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Donate and Support Connect Kids
Connect Kids Mentoring Program has been supported by a select few generous local businesses and individuals for the past four years. We don’t pay our mentors, but we do incur admin costs that are involved in inducting mentors, matching mentors with suitable kids etc. We also incur operational running costs similar to any business as well as employing a social worker to assist with the many regular crisis situations among youth in our community.
Simply put, we need donations to keep doing what we do. Donations are fully tax deductible and we are calling upon local business to support us as a local charity. We also welcome individual donations or sponsorships. Please click here to make a donation.
