Volunteer Youth Worker (SH)

← Back to search results

This youth project is held in Darby Green, Blackwater for 11-25 year olds. We run term-time only in a function room at St Barnabas Church.

Commitment is just once or twice a month depending on your preference and the role involves engaging with our young people, setting and clearing up, serving drinks and working with a great team of youth workers. The role is on a rota basis so there is no weekly commitment.

The youth club is a café format with some low-level activities including board games, mindfulness colouring and simple crafts. The café is designed to be a listening ear for older young people who may have had a tough day, or need to get out and socialize for a little while. You would have an opportunity to train in Youth Mental Health First Aid if it is of interest. 

What skills do I need?

Ability to interact with the young people and work well as a team. Sense of humour and willingness to have fun is key!

Volunteers must be 18+ but we're happy to accommodate uni students home for the holidays. Any training in mental health first aid is desirable but not essential.
