SHINE for Kids is the only national charity to provide services to support children and young people from infancy through to reaching adulthood at 18, our programs operate in secure, open custody, and transitional correctional facilities throughout NSW, ACT, VIC and QLD

SHINE for Kids programs are designed to provide positive opportunities to reduce the likelihood of children transitioning into child protection and justice systems, help avoid family fragmentation, and to reduce both juvenile and adult recidivism.

The Prison In-Visits program supports positive family interaction and provides a variety of arts, craft and diversionary activities for children to share with their parents. This program is conducted within the relevant visiting area of the following correctional centres:

  • Numinbah Correctional Centre
  • Helana Jones Correctional Centre
  • Brisbane Womens Correctional Centre


You will be volunteering in the In-Visits area on Saturdays and Sundays

Experience working with children is preferred although not essential.  A friendly and open personality with a willingness to work within the prison visitors’ centre is a requirement.

You will need a current Blue card and clearance to volunteer at the correctional facility.


  • Correctional Centre induction training
  • SHINE for Kids program training and supervision
