Volunteer Opportunities

If you are looking to work with children and young people in the future then volunteering is a great start and will give you specific skills, ability’s and experience  that are highly sought after by employers. You would work to engage with young people on a voluntary basis in their own communities to help them to become successful, happy citizens as they transition into young adults.

We have a range of youth work projects available that run across the city with links to other partner organisations. Our usual youth work sessions are on weekday evenings for around 2-3 hours and there are also weekends and residential opportunities working on the Duke of Edinburgh and NCS programmes. There are also a variety of opportunities to undertake one to one mentoring with young people. 

How to become a volunteer

To become a volunteer working with young people you don’t need to have any experience but you do need to be over 18, reliable and trustworthy, have a good sense of humour and understand the issues faced by young people.

We will offer you regular management support, a variety of training, the opportunity to be part of a vibrant and enthusiastic team and a range of experiences that will help your personal and professional development. If you are successful with us we can even write you a reference.

We work in partnership with the Better Together volunteering project, based accross Peterborough, this is to ensure that you are fully supported to start with us. The Better Together Project will arrange an interview with you, complete your DBS Check and you will go through 2 days of training. 

If you are interested please take the time to complete the online application form using the link: Volunteer Application Form. Once your application has been received, the volunteer Manager from the Better Together Project will be in contact with you within 6 working days to arrange a meeting.
