Charity registered in Scotland SC037738

We are a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. Find out more about how we help.

Current opportunity Why we want you We need volunteers to lead interactive workshops for young people to build on their humanitarian values and to develop their personal, social, emotional skills. Some workshops will be about migration. You will challenge assumptions about migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, help them to develop empathy about migrants' motives for moving and understand the obstacles they face in their new homes. Other workshops will focus on first aid. You will help them learn skills so that they can use the everyday objects around them to help when someone is injured or ill. You will get the satisfaction of developing young people’s skills and abilities and seeing them grow in confidence. What you will be doing Lead interactive workshops for groups of young people in schools and youth settings (e.g. youth groups, community centres and youth offending units). Help to plan workshops and prepare resources. Evaluate workshops using simple feedback methods. Look after training resources. Be observed once a year so that we can give you feedback on how you’re doing. Give feedback to improve our education products and workshops. Ideally able to lead a 2 – 4 hour session each fortnight usually on weekdays between 9am and 5pm, with occasional weekends or evenings. What's in it for you The opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives. Meet new people and be part of a supportive and inclusive team. A great opportunity to develop your existing skills and gain new ones. Free training and ongoing personal development for the role. Refund of reasonable expenses spent while volunteering and attending training.
