Youth Work Volunteer (Balmaise)

  • VO74576


Description

Would you like to volunteer alongside young people aged 8-12 years, encouraging and supporting them to reach their full potential, and at a place where their achievements are recognised and celebrated?
Throughout their involvement with young people, the Youth Service aim to ensure that young people enjoy their youth work experiences, that they learn new skills and take part in opportunities with an emphasis on building relationships, learning together and having fun. The relationship that a young person has with Youth Work volunteers and staff is therefore central to what can be achieved and as a volunteer you will be directly involved in the youth club and it's activities.
A volunteer that has a talent for passing on a skill in Sports, Arts & Crafts, Cooking & Baking and Music will quickly fit in with the needs of young people.
You will help young people to participate, develop and grow so that they are confident, resilient and optimistic about their future.
The club runs Wednesdays 6-7.30pm, volunteer needed 15 minutes before and after, term-time only.

Organisation aims and objectives

We work with young people between the ages of 14 – 25 who are interested in giving back to their local communities or want to build upon their employability skills by getting work experience in different settings (manly youth work). Young people will also have the opportunity to achieve a number of different awards and qualifications.
