Help Out

Are you a trainee Youth Worker? Studying for a Youth and Community Degree? Our Youth Leader is JNC qualified and able to act as Supervisor for any direct contact hours required.

Our helpers are the life-blood of the club and do all they can to provide the best possible experiences. We work as a family to support the young people. We’re always looking for more helpers and are really flexible on roles and time commitments.

What do our helpers do?

VolunteerPool

Sell tuck, organise activities, sit on the committee, assist with fundraising, explain the finer points of getting pool shots on target, assisting with cooking. The list is endless.

What’s the Time Commitment?

What can you spare? Two hours a week, month, or year? We’ll work with you. Your commitment can be as big or as a small as you want. If you help at sessions, we use an online sign-up so you commit to weeks you can make, and if things change, we understand.

Rather do an admin role? We’d be delighted with whatever help you are able to give in this area as well.

Is there training offered?
If you’re only helping for a one-off session, we’ll show the basics of the club but you won’t get a lot more. If you’re regularly helping and think this is something you’d be really keen on getting involved in (who wouldn’t?), we’ll offer a full induction and shadowing options with progressive routes.

We want all our young people to be safe so conduct DBS checks on all our helpers. We also ask our helpers to hold a valid safeguarding qualification. This can be undertaken either online or via a tutor led session as works best for you. The youth club cover agreed expenses.

Additionally there is the opportunity to undertake further training courses, both certified ones such as First Aid or Food Safety, as well as best-practice sessions such as digital safety or principles of youth work.

What do our helpers say?
I’m really enjoying it. They’re a great bunch of kids. Sign up – you’ll enjoy it!
