Company Impact days and Employee Volunteering – Kids Haven welcomes company volunteer days and employee volunteering. 

We have ideas to get the best out of your days and we are always open to hear your ideas.  There are many ways to interact with the children and to help us with improving the environment for the children.

Individual adult Volunteering

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate in-person volunteering with our children during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is primarily for the safety of our children. 

We are however very grateful to anyone who can volunteer remotely/virtually. If this is YOU please contact Lindiwe at volunteers@kidshaven.co.za  for more info.

No volunteering takes place on a Sunday

Benoni:  Afternoon tutors for school homework help.  Can you commit to one afternoon a week between 3pm and 4:30 pm to supervise and support our homework sessions?  We need you to commit to once a week for one term at a time. Contact Lindiwe at volunteers@kidshaven.co.za to offer help.  You will need a police clearance certificate.

Bryanston:  Are you based in or near to our Donation Centre in Bryanston?  We need your help with the background activities to host our annual golf day.  This means following up with previous sponsors or cold calling to find great prizes for our golfers.  You will need to bring your laptop or tablet. It is best if you can commit to helping us one morning a week for at least a month.  Contact Connie at connie@kidshaven.co.za.

Benoni:  Do you have time to spare in a morning?  You can help us to sort our donations, especially building children’s puzzles and checking games to make sure all the pieces are inside the box.  Join us one morning during the week. Contact Lindiwe at volunteers@kidshaven.co.za to arrange your time.

Bryanston:  Do you have some spare time one morning?  Can you pop into our Bryanston office and bring along your laptop.  We appreciate help to contact Companies and check their conditions for donating to charity.  We call this donor research. Please contact Connie at connie@kidshaven.co.za if you can help.

Benoni:  Do you have a special talent or skill?  Can you paint, draw, teach music or write poetry?  We would love you to commit to running a small group with our children for at least one month.  This can take place in the mornings, or after school or on a Saturday morning. We will need to chat first to hear your ideas and work out how to fit the activity into our schedule.  Contact Lindiwe at volunteers@kidshaven.co.za if this is YOU.  You will need a police clearance certificate.

All activities with the children take place in Benoni at our Centre or at the Village.  Please chat to Lindiwe at volunteers@kidshaven.co.za

Administration and fundraising or event support takes place from the Kids Haven Donation centre in Bryanston.  Please chat to Susan at sued@kidshaven.co.za if you are able to help in any of these activities.  The address is 300 Main Road, Bryanston, or call Connie or Susan on 011 706 7959.

Rules of Volunteering at Kids Haven:

  1. The needs of our children are our priority.  Kids Haven must manage any potential disruption to the children and we often have to limit the number of opportunities that we have for interaction with the children.
  2. No volunteering takes place on a Sunday or public holiday.  These are our “at home” days and we cannot have visitors on these days.
  3. We need reliable and committed volunteers.  It is best if you live near us in Benoni.
  4. Volunteers are not to give gifts directly to the children.  We don’t want our children to think every visitor has to bring them a present.  This is not good for children!
  5. If you want to make a meal for the children, you will need to prepare it in our kitchen.  This is not OUR rule, but the rules of the Health authorities. We cannot change this rule.

Get Involved

You can get involved by volunteering, donating money or second hand goods.
