Give Kids The World can accommodate any volunteer group size and we can customize your group volunteer experience. Spend a day, an afternoon, or just a few hours. Groups may volunteer on a select date, on a regular basis, or several times per year. Volunteer groups are typically scheduled in a variety of areas throughout the Village including:
- food service
- entertainment venues and programs
- behind the scenes projects
- much more
Whether you are visiting the Central Florida area or simply looking for a volunteer opportunity for your group in the community, Give Kids The World offers a variety of volunteer experiences. If your group is looking for higher level of interaction with our children and families, morning and evening shifts are best. During the Mid-Day shifts, we get more behind-the-scenes projects accomplished. Regardless, each one is essential to our program.
