DD8 music is thrilled to be looking for volunteers to involve in running our Discovery Project where young people will learn the fundamentals of DJing from the basics of rhythm and timing; to using filters, effects, scratching and looping. Effectively structuring a mix teaches young people to create and follow a plan, improve their timekeeping skills and problem solving; whilst thinking critically and creatively to enhance skills and technical repertoire. The programme will give the young people a core knowledge of the musical theory such as key changes, waveforms, and BPM and the ability to implement this into their mixes. Sessions are a combination of theory and practical lessons; the theory aspect of the sessions include presentations, games, and group work.
DD8 Music are looking for volunteers close to Arbroath for a couple of projects
# DJ Discovery project running on a Tuesday evening 5.30-7.30pm in central Arbroath. There will be plenty of opportunity to help run a fun DJ workshop with our trained staff, learn about how to transport and set up music equipment, get experience teaching basic skills and working with people from a variety of backgrounds.
# DJ Discovery will also be looking for volunteers for a Tuesday or Thursday working in Arbroath High. Times and days are to be confirmed however with more of a focus on working with young people!
If you're at all interested in volunteering with us either for the DJ discovery project, or any other projects get in touch via their social media, or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This volunteering role will involve a healthy mixture of helping to move music equipment and instruments to our group activity locations, setting up the rooms in preparation of the activities, and tidying up/taking equipment and instruments back, as well as helping during sessions.
Whilst the groups are in session, this role will allow you to supervise and give advice, encouragement, and support to the young people as well as the opportunity to build a rapport with them whilst our staff deliver their session plans. Sessions can either take a more structured, or free form style, so this role will be perfect for you not only if you crave structure, but also if you prefer a more easy-going environment with more space for spontaneous creativity.
This role would be a great opportunity either if you already have some musical ability and knowledge that you want to use, grow, or improve or if you want to help kick start your musical interests through helping others! This role is not only perfect for those with musical interests, as there’s lots of exciting ways of getting involved which can be tailored around you, and your interests and we have plenty of other roles besides!
· Helping transport, unpack and set up musical equipment
· Supervising and supporting young people in trying out instruments and practicing
· Helping tidy and take away equipment after sessions are over
· Helping staff deliver the session plan
· Engaging and supervising young people and adults during sessions

Nemo Arts is an organisation that exists to support people in recovery from poor mental health. We provide creative workshops that have a focus on mental wellbeing. Nemo Arts provide opportunities for people to do something different. It gives a safe non-judgemental environment for people to come along and forget about their problems. Sometime people like to come along and explore their experiences through creativity. Perhaps most important is the social aspect of our workshops. Participants get a chance to meet those who perhaps have similar experiences and can start to build positive social networks. This can help in developing a social life outside of the group. We also support participants to be part of a community where they can access other services. We have a wide network of organisations that we regularly work with, and we often direct people to them for additional support if they require it.
Volunteers will be required every Tuesday from 11:45 - 2:15, the actual session is 12pm - 2pm. This role offers the opportunity to work closely with our Drama Tutor. A workshop assistant’s role will be to help provide a welcoming and educational environment.

Patient Partners are members of the public who assist in the practice and learning sessions by being available to speak to and be examined by our students. There is no prior training or experiences necessary to be selected to join the Programme, all we ask is that a Patient Partner be willing to help, reliable and most importantly have a good sense of humour!
Patient Partners may role play a health problem from a scenario (short description of symptoms and how they have been affecting you, as well as a social and medical history) so that medical and dental students can practise interviewing patients away from the hussle and bussle of a busy hospital ward. Patient Partners may also be used for non-invasive procedures/examinations (for example, the taking of a blood pressure, listening to a patient’s lungs or having joints examined/put through normal movements).
There is no prior training or experiences necessary, all we ask is that you are willing to help, reliable and most importantly have a good sense of humour! Good support is provided to all volunteers and all help makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
