On Saturday, Roundabout launched a new volunteering initiative called Roundabout Juniors for ages 8-12. If your child wants to help people in need, joining the group is a great opportunity for them to give back while having fun. The aim of Roundabout Juniors is to involve children in charity work and enable them to understand the importance of helping those less fortunate than themselves.
Kids will have different roles, such as counting the coins received from donations, checking that games and other donations are in good condition before they are sent off or sold, packing items, and more. Roundabout Juniors volunteers will also get to decide what the collected money should be used for. Roundabout will also show young volunteers photos of the donations being received to make them understand how their work is helping to improve living conditions for other children.
Every Saturday during the school term, there will be three one-hour sessions. Children who apply are required to attend every week and give notice every time they are going to miss a session. If a child misses three sessions without giving notice, they risk losing their place in the group.
