Let’s Go, Lego Club—Call for Volunteers
Golden Plains Shire Council is looking for volunteers to help deliver the Let’s Go, Lego Club, a wonderful program for kids that is run weekly in Bannockburn during school terms. We’re looking for a local person or people, who enjoy working with children and making a positive difference in kids’ lives.
The Let’s Go, Lego Club is held for one hour every week from 4.00pm – 5.00pm at the Bannockburn Library on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday afternoon. Council seeks a volunteer (or a few volunteers to share the role), who can help out on one of these weeknights.
What is Let’s Go, Lego all about?
This great program incorporates Lego so that children can explore their creativity. It also provides the opportunity for children to make friends as well as further develop their ‘building’ skills. While the program is fantastic for any child who loves Lego, the program has proven to be particularly effective in engaging children with autism.
What are the Let’s Go Lego Club volunteers expected to do?
- Undergo basic training
- Set up and pack up Lego equipment
- Liaise with parents
- Supervise and direct Lego activities.
Please note, volunteers are not the only adults present. It is a requirement that Lego participants are supported by a parent, carer or guardian during all activities.
What will volunteers get out of this experience?
Volunteering in this program is a great way to improve quality of life for kids and give back to the community. Like many volunteer roles, it makes you feel great because of the impact you know you are having on other people’s lives.
If you like working in groups and helping children, and have great supervisory and communication skills, our Volunteer Coordinator would like to hear from you. Experience working with children with disabilities is desirable, but not essential.
Make a difference in your community and become a Golden Plains Shire Council volunteer today—contact Volunteer Coordinator, Caroline Jordan on 5220 7111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
