Description

Adult Leaders should be aged eighteen years or over. They will assist with the running of weekly PSYV group meetings and be involved with local community based projects and charities. Adult Leaders will also have the opportunity to be involved in attending local and national major events as part of the PSYV.

There will be a group meeting every week for two hours in an evening and all Youth Volunteers will be expected to volunteer at least three hours a month supporting local projects. Adult Leaders will be required to assist with this.

There will be a flexible approach taken to the number of hours an Adult leader can commit and this can be discussed with the Group Coordinator.

All Adult Leaders will require a PVG check and vetting any costs associated with this will be met by Police Scotland. Full training and support will be provided.

For more specific information contact the PSYV Fraserburgh group Coordinator for an informal discussion.
