The Junction - Young People, Health & Wellbeing

Charity registered in Scotland SC036721

We work to promote long-term prevention of health problems, to raise young people’s awareness and self-esteem and to enable them to make informed choices about their health and well-being. The aim is to help them help themselves which if successful with will ultimately have a positive effect on the community.

Current opportunity

This is a fun and supportive volunteering opportunity for 14 to 21 year olds who are interested in health and wellbeing. The Junction Youth Advisors (JYAs) meet as a group to talk about issues affecting young people's health and wellbeing in North-East Edinburgh. You'll make a real difference to The Junction by helping us to improve and promote our services. The JYAs are often asked to contribute their ideas to city-wide, national and international projects too. You can help try out our new services, create new resources like posters and videos, promote The Junction at events, take part in discussions and suggest your own ideas. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and build up your confidence in a safe and friendly group which values young people's rights and voices.
