Volunteer Helper - Penicuik

  • VO71986


Description

Have you ever thought about giving back to your community? Your help could provide a safe space for Children & Young People to go each week to Learn, Grow and Discover.
As a volunteer with the Boys’ Brigade you can become involved in helping our leaders facilitate a wide variety of activities for children from Primary 1 to Secondary 6. Our Penicuik Company meet every Friday evening from 6.30pm.
Each meeting varies but typical activities include games and sports, arts and crafts and skills-based activities that go toward the achievements programme. Not to mention going on outings and assisting with the participation in regional competitions! With more volunteers we will be able to do many more activities and maybe be able to organise more camping experiences for the young people.

All we ask is that our volunteers are enthusiastic, committed and enjoy working with children and young people. Being able to work well as part of a small team is beneficial.

All volunteers must have PVG clearance which we will facilitate.
