Description

Streetsport provides young people across Aberdeen City with the opportunity to play sport for free in a fun and safe environment.

We run week night sessions year-round and are looking for volunteers to help at these sessions. Working as part of a team, you will assist with organising and participating in activities while building relationships with the young people that attend the sessions.

Volunteering with Streetsport is a fantastic opportunity to make a positive difference in the local communities. In addition to enhancing your CV / excellent experience for future employment, you will also have the opportunity to attend internal and external coaching and training courses.
