ZOE protects the identity and dignity of children and does not show trafficked children.
ZOE value the contribution of the volunteers who give their time and expertise. ZOE currently has volunteers who assist on a project or at an event.
Please note: ZOE are often asked if people can volunteer by travelling overseas to directly engage in rescue operations. Honestly, this question comes from a great place as it shows people's hearts to take action - and we love that, but we do not offer this as a volunteer role.
The work of ZOE is different in each country, but the role of ZOE staff is to assist rescue/recovery operations at the request of, and alongside law enforcement. ZOE staff fill a range of specific operational roles such as; child protection, evidence collection, social work, child advocacy or other roles as requested by law enforcement.
The way we will prevent child trafficking is by building a community of people who are aware and educated about Modern Slavery. That is why we always ask people to firstly 'volunteer' their time to do the ZOE Pathway To Preventing Child Trafficking online course.
Our current focuses in Australia are aimed to increase understanding about child trafficking globally, through education and events in Australia, and increase awareness of and support for children in Australia.
Current volunteer opportunities may be things such as; helping ZOE at an event, helping ZOE to coordinate events or fundraisers and other projects. We also aim to to match people's skills with a specific need in areas like; research, law, policy, proofreading, media or even helping to acquire in-kind donations for families doing out of home care.
