Youth Team Volunteers teach young people, from a wide breadth of backgrounds, vital first aid skills. Volunteers will help young people develop their confidence, teamwork skills and self-discipline.
We have Youth Helpers and Youth Leaders. You’ll join as a Youth Helper, and have the opportunity to become a Youth Leader (if you’d like) through additional training and experience. This comes with more responsibility for running the unit and supporting our fabulous young people.
Training and time commitment
The training and support we will provide for you is as follows:
- Welcome programme introducing you to the project and wider charity
- Training in appropriate SJA policies
- St John Safeguarding training relevant to your role
- Introduction to Safeguarding
- Youth team training
- Out of pocket expenses.
Expected Time Commitment
Sessions between 1½-2 hours, usually during termtime. Initially we're looking for you to join the unit at least once a month, but we love it when volunteers can join the young people every week.
We also need youth leaders to support our Duke of Edinburgh's Award participants.
