Kodomo no Hi Japan Festival is made possible through the help of volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to learn some new skills, gain experience and make friends.

Tasks we need help with include:

  • cooking
  • helping with activities and stalls
  • setting up and cleaning up the festival
  • selling raffle tickets
  • welcoming visitors
  • supervising carpark, etc.

Volunteers should be available 9 am – 5 pm on the day of the Festival.  We also need some volunteers to work on the Friday afternoon before the festival, and Saturday before to assist with preparations. We also need a large number of volunteers to help pack up on the Sunday afternoon on the day of the festival.

You will receive:

  • free lunch and drink
  • invitation to Thank You Party
  • free time during the Festival to enjoy the events
  • rich and rewarding experience and an opportunity to make new friends.
