Buddies Day is a volunteer-run care and respite program. It involves one activity day per month (on a Sunday) where children participate in various activities such as laser tag, bowling, arts and crafts, swimming, virtual reality, sports, and visits to zoos, museums, and aquariums. The program is for children aged 8-13 years old who may come from various challenging backgrounds and who would not normally have these kinds of opportunities.

As a volunteer leader, the main responsibilities involved in the role include:

  • Attending Buddies Day once a month
  • Participation in the planning and coordination of Buddies Day
  • Participation in the planned activities alongside the children
  • Assisting in transporting children to and from Buddies Day
  • Monitoring and supervising the children
  • Helping to ensure the children have a fun, safe day
