General Volunteer (Mental Health and Youth Work)

  • VO77369


Description

Our General Volunteers support Feeling Strong in its activities, including fundraising, awareness raising and working with young people at events and on our programmes! The role is varied and diverse, takes place at a range of times and we're flexible to work with so there is always an opportunity that can fit in with your lifestyle.

We believe that a support first environment (as opposed to traditional line management) allows our volunteers to really shine and empowers them in their role. We ask that our volunteers display a level of commitment so that we can work together in a way that supports the best interests of the Young People we all want to help. We believe in creating development opportunities for our volunteers and enabling them to develop their own projects and opportunities with Feeling Strong.

Volunteers should be aged 14 - 26 years old..
