Volunteer with Us

We have many opportunities for people who want to volunteer with us.

“Youth Insearch is an absolute blessing to every Participant, Support Adult, Leader and Team Member who gets to experience it.  I have watched people grow out of their shells, their trauma and experiences, have an unbiased place to be loved, to be themselves, to be heard and giving youth a safe place helps them thrive. We are all so grateful!”

- Bec, Support Adult


A support adult brings young people to the program and organises their support groups and after care help. We also need support people to be nominated drivers, who have their own car and don't mind driving our participants from A to B on occasion.

Youth Insearch Support Adults are community members from all walks of life, who want to do all they can support young people. The Support Adult maintains contact with the participant(s) following the program and provides necessary resources for support and referral to appropriate agencies. They bring their heart, their passion and hope to the young people. 

Support adults attend Weekend Workshops and Weekly Support Groups with the young people, encouraging them to become empowered, to get what they need to move forward. Support Adults have a passion to see young people aspire to achieve to the best of their potential. They play an important role as mentors – maintain contact with participants following programs and provide support, advocacy and referral to specialist counselling. 

We appreciate all that our volunteers do. As the saying goes “Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time, they have the heart” (Elizabeth Andrew) 

To apply to volunteer with us as a Support Adult, please submit your details via our Adult Involvement application.



Our volunteers assist with fundraising activities organised by Youth Insearch. You can also run a fundraising event on behalf of Youth Insearch.


The legacy of the late Sonia Gidley-King will always live on through the Love Wraps that continue to be made all over the country by the large network of knitters - groups like the Lions Clubs, Country Women's Association, Rotary, and many more.

Love Wraps have become a tradition at Youth Insearch weekend workshops, where each participant receives their very own Love Wrap to treasure.

The generous people at Wrap with Love are always looking for volunteers who are prepared to knit squares or blankets. If you or your social group would like to knit up a storm, Youth Insearch and Wrap with Love would be very grateful.
