Why we want you
We need volunteers to lead interactive workshops for young people to build on
their humanitarian values and to develop their personal, social, emotional skills.
Some workshops will be about migration. You will challenge assumptions about
migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, help them to develop empathy about
migrants' motives for moving and understand the obstacles they face in their
new homes.
Other workshops will focus on first aid. You will help them learn skills so that
they can use the everyday objects around them to help when someone is
injured or ill.
You will get the satisfaction of developing young people’s skills and abilities and
seeing them grow in confidence.
What you will be doing
Lead interactive workshops for groups of young people in schools and
youth settings (e.g. youth groups, community centres and youth offending
units).
Help to plan workshops and prepare resources.
Evaluate workshops using simple feedback methods.
Look after training resources.
Be observed once a year so that we can give you feedback on how you’re
doing.
Give feedback to improve our education products and workshops.

Ideally able to lead a 2 – 4 hour session each fortnight usually on
weekdays between 9am and 5pm, with occasional weekends or evenings.
What's in it for you
The opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives.
Meet new people and be part of a supportive and inclusive team.
A great opportunity to develop your existing skills and gain new ones.
Free training and ongoing personal development for the role.
Refund of reasonable expenses spent while volunteering and attending training.
