Summary

Youth group volunteer. Help out at our weekly youth group for young asylum seekers and refugees in Norwich.

Detailed description

Norwich International Youth Project is a small charity which supports young people in Norfolk aged 11-25 who are seeking asylum, have refugee status or are otherwise displaced from their country of origin.


We are looking for volunteers to help out at our drop-in youth group. Sessions are relaxed and we do a wide range of activities including creative activities, sports, games and trips in the local area. Each week we cook and eat a meal together. Volunteers are expected to:


-Commit to regular participation at youth group sessions (Thursdays 4pm-7pm)

-Get stuck in and encourage young people to participate in activities

-Help set up and pack away equipment

-Assist staff and activity providers to deliver sessions

-Help with cooking and cleaning where necessary

-Attend volunteer meetings and training (including safeguarding training)

-Follow NIYP code of conduct and safeguarding policies


We are looking for volunteers who can commit to regular attendance on Thursday evenings, 4pm-7pm and are comfortable communicating with young people from diverse backgrounds. Volunteers should be confident communicating by phone and email. We ask that volunteers are aged 23 or over. If you do not have a recent DBS or recent safeguarding training then NIYP will pay for this. We are looking for volunteers who are available for at least 6 months.


What's in it for you?...

-Youth group is fun!

-You would be part of a small, friendly team of staff and volunteers at NIYP.

-There may be training and networking opportunities which contribute to professional development.

-We occasionally go on trips and residential visits.


If this sounds good to you then please click 'join' and then fill in our volunteer application form to help us get an idea of your interests, motivations and availability. Thanks!
