Orlando is the number one tourist destination. 72 million people visit the city each year adding a very diverse culture to Orlando. We have a very unique opportunity with a place called Give Kids the World. This is a resort/village for children with life threatening illnesses whose wish is to visit Orlando and its exciting attractions. The families stay at the village for a week and enjoy such amenities as putt putt, pools, free ice cream, food and much more. This exciting place allows families to take a break from the hustle and bustle of doctor visits and the worry of life with an illness. Each week you will volunteer 20 to 30 hours in the village. You will live out your faith through your lifestyle.
There are 200 different volunteer jobs each day to choose from. You will develop relationships that you never thought possible with the staff, other volunteers and the families. The emotional ties you develop weekly will begin to change your heart forever. Your faith will be challenged and strengthened. During the rest of the week you will participate in ministries along with the rest of the ROCK Ministries Summer Team. You will conduct a Kid’s Club in a hotel pool 3 days a week. Kid’s Clubs are like a Backyard Bible Club/Daycamp with Bible stories, games in the pool, crafts and snacks.
You will have the opportunity to touch lives of people from all over the world. You will help with other ministries such as face painting and balloon sculpting. You will also get to work with a local church each week. You will be stretched out of your comfort zone. You will learn to live out and share your faith. If you are a compassionate person, love children and have a servant’s heart come spend your summer in Orlando volunteering at Give Kids the World.
