Want to help by getting involved?

There are lots of ways to help with the work we do in Kowanyama.

Here are some ways:

  • Help with some administration on your computer at home or graphic design/video editing
  • Help develop programs
  • Help run or participate in Leadership camps, mentoring programs, writing encouraging mail and weekend trips
  • Do some volunteer gardening or building work
  • Help with fundraising
  • Even move to Kowanyama to live and work

Check out the pages underOUR WORK  for more information on what is already happening.

I would like to help but I am too busy!

We understand some people really want to help but may only be able to do a one off task or help in a small way. It could be as little as a couple of hours a year. Any contribution no matter how small is appreciated. Please use the form on this page for more information.

I'm too old to help!

Also don't think that you have to be young to work with youth, some of our team members that Kowanyama kids have warmed to the most have been 'mature' and a mature outlook and experience is always welcome amongst our volunteers at oUT tHERE Kowanyama Inc.

I don't feel connected or valuable! Try getting Committed for the long term!

Real change takes time, trust and relationship. Our core group of volunteers are committed to serving Kowanyama & Cape York for the long term. We are always looking for others that share or wish to make a long term commitment.

Come on a week long program and consider if you can commit to one each year for example. Or you can just be involved in Cairns based support of boarding kids. Or consider if you might like to work in Kowanyama as a teacher, tradesperson, nurse etc. where you can make a difference.

How would I go about living and work in Kowanyama?

We have helped teachers, nurses, doctors, and tradesmen find a way to serve the Kowanyama community with their professional skills and talents. Please use our  the form on this page to see if we can help.

I would like to help with a program / activity!
