Volunteering in Orlando? There are hundreds of jobs for volunteers at Give Kids The World Village. Give Kids The World Village is located in Kissimmee less than 10 miles from Disney World.
Give Kids The World Village host the families of children with life-threatening illnesses from around the world. They have welcomed more than 167,000 families from all 50 states and 76 countries.
It’s a whimsical Village, unlike any other place on earth. The Village and its community partners provide children and their families with accommodations in fully-furnished villas, transportation, theme park tickets, meals, daily entertainment and much more. During the day, families can visit theme parks and top Orlando attractions. In the evening, return to the Village, which is overflowing with themed parties, events, and surprises.
Volunteering at Give Kids The World Village inspires hope, it creates priceless memories, and it helps kids with life-threatening illnesses and their families celebrate and have fun.
As you can imagine, hundreds of jobs for volunteers need to be filled each week. Over a quarter of a million volunteers have already served.
There are many unique entertainment programs requiring help. These entertainment volunteers operate the carousel, distribute towels at the pool, are an attendant for the horse carriage rides, help with the pony rides, are a Castle monitor and assist with the Star Fairy program.
Help with Mayor Clayton’s surprise birthday party, help Santa by distributing gifts or take your turn at turning people size cards at the world’s largest Candy Land game. How cool are these volunteer positions?
Transform into a pirate, a princess, a mermaid, or a knight. Or change into costume for the Winter Wonderland Parade.
Maybe you prefer to help with dining. There are plenty of volunteering opportunities that range from delivering pizza and cookies to serving up ice cream and breakfast.
Are you a skilled performer? They are needed too, such as a caricature artist, magician, puppeteer, and more.
What about the role of a train conductor, village shuttle driver or be the first impression that these special families receive by being an airport greeter.
This honestly is just a small list of the volunteering opportunities that exist. Trust me when I say there is a volunteer position for each member of your family to be able to assist and have fun doing it.
