Vision 4 Youth values and appreciates all volunteers who give their time to support our charity. V4Y
believes that the role of a volunteer is particularly beneficial to the running of the charity for a variety of reasons such as:
- To support the community
- To provide a large pool of skills from a wide variety of people, through qualifications, work related activity and life skills, all of which would provide additional benefit to the activities in the youth clubs as well as the overall running of the charity
- To share ideas and become a better charity through acting upon good suggestions made
- The life skills and wide range of volunteers involved provide a better experience for the young people attending youth projects (“end users”)
- To add a financial and local value to the charity
- To encourage young people to undertake volunteering opportunities themselves in the future
- To run the charity as a team.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us run our youth projects, both inside our clubs and out! We are very grateful to everyone who is able to give us some of their time no matter how big or small.
Most of our volunteers take on the role of Youth Worker in one or more of our clubs, assisting with the running of the sessions on a fortnightly basis or as little as one evening a month. You do not need youth work experience to get involved just a positive attitude and a commitment to make a difference. You can choose which club is the best fit for you depending upon your own interests and availability.
Other volunteer roles within the team include administration, publicity, social media support, fundraising support, food shopping, teaching your skills to our young people (eg. A particular art or sport, anything really!), networking to promote V4Y and charity administration through becoming a Trustee – all of which would mean varying amounts of time commitment to suit you. Basically if there is anything you can do to help out then we’d love to hear from you! Please complete the form below and we can discuss how things can work for you.
Thank you for expressing an interest in volunteering with us!
