Sported supports over 3,000 amazing community groups that use the power of sport to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people. We support sporting groups in and around Aberdeen City.
Our volunteers are carefully matched with a Sported member clubs within their locality, who they then support on a one-to-one basis to help them with the business side of their affairs.
We support groups who are utilising sport to bring about real social difference throughout the UK so you’ll be paired with a group that are doing really inspiring work.
These groups are doing incredible work but require some guidance around the business side of their organisation in order to survive and thrive.

Are you over 16 years of age with time available to help young people reach their full potential and get on the path towards their first job? If you can spare up to two days a week, or less, join our team on our trailblazing canal college outdoors on the Forth & Clyde Canal in West Dunbartonshire. No specific skills are required to be a canal college mentor and help young people, who haven’t been able to get a job or place in further education, learn a raft of new heritage and environment skills and improve their prospects for a brighter future.
We need volunteer mentors to work closely with our local canal college Project Co-ordinator to help deliver one or more of our 14 week programmes.
• Do you have the skills to help us teach landscaping, tree and vegetation management, stonework, carpentry, wildlife conservation, trail creation, engineering or maintenance?

• Perhaps you can help us develop softer skills, such as problem solving and how to behave and flourish in a work environment.
We are looking for volunteers of all ages and backgrounds with enthusiasm being more important than experience.

We are happy for you to come once a week, once a month and are happy to hear from people who would be willing to share a skill or experience for a little while as part of a program of activities.

The impact you can make

As an Adventure Buddy, you can play an active role in encouraging children to take part in activities, develop confidence and experience new opportunities. By taking part in an activity together, volunteers can motivate and reassure children, and form trusting relationships.
The benefits to you

A Youth Ambassador will be involved in promoting Saltire Awards, inspiring other young people to volunteer, make decisions for the annual summit awards and organising the annual Youth Volunteering Awards. An ambassador will attend monthly meeting and has the opportunity to be involved in fundraising events for the annual awards evening. Being an ambassador will also involve the individual engaging and inspiring their peers to uptake volunteering opportunities in Dundee.

The ACF is one of the country’s largest voluntary youth organisations. If you can give up one or two evenings a week and want to do something different with your free time, this could be exactly what you are looking for. You do not need a military background and we will provide all the training you require.
For most people taking part in volunteering projects is about 'giving something back', socialising and making new friends, or getting to know the local community. Others enjoy finding a worthwhile hobby that gives them quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle, or knowing they are making a difference to the lives of young people.
But as any one of our thousands of adults will tell you, it is watching the cadets grow and develop, and knowing that you have helped them along the way, which is the most rewarding part of being in the ACF.
