Weave’s Kool Kids Club is an early intervention and prevention program providing children aged 7-13 years, with opportunities to engage in recreational activities and mentoring.

Focused on improving social health and wellbeing, connection to culture and promoting strength and resilience, Weave works with local schools to deliver free after school and holiday activity programs for young people in Sydney.

Kool Kids programs vary each term, and can include activities such as:

  • Arts & craft
  • Swimming
  • Cooking
  • Creative writing
  • Surfing
  • Footy
  • Leadership

You will be assigned to support a specific activity depending on your availability, skills, experience and interests.

General duties will include:

  • Helping to run fun and engaging activities for Kool Kids as directed by Weave staff.
  • Helping with meal preparation, activity planning and supervision and other relevant tasks as requested to support Weave staff.
  • Engaging children in an appropriate, culturally safe and strengths based manner.
  • Other relevant tasks to support the smooth running of the Kool Kids program, as requested by staff.
