Tayside Council on Alcohol (Angus)

Current opportunities

Are you looking to gain experience in youth work? The Crew would be a great place to begin. The Crew is based in a group setting and supports young people from P7-S3 and runs every Thursday 5pm to 7pm term time. The Crew takes place in our Arbroath office and is for young people who have been affected by others’ substance use, not engaging in school, and/or have struggles in their home or the wider community. This group can help support young people and provide structure and security. We run sessions which focus on confidence building and life skills such as cooking and budgeting. We also do information sessions on how to keep safe in the community including awareness on drugs, alcohol, vaping and anti-social behaviour.

Supporting staff to plan and facilitate group activities for primary aged children in Kinship care, this group volunteering role would suit someone who is confident and enthusiastic and wants to work with young people. The volunteering role would be from 4pm to 6.30pm every Tuesday during term time, and would support the facilitator to set up the activity and clean up afterwards. There may be additional opportunities during the school holidays.
