Young Volunteers

Lifeworks is keen to involve young volunteers across all of our community projects – you might have a skill you want to share; be a brilliant surfer, DJ or footballer. You might have skills you want to learn; how to enable; plan and participate. Your starting point might be you want to gain work experience and improve your CV – but we hope once you’ve come on board you’ll gain a whole heap more through involvement.

“I did enjoy volunteering for the group I was with and the group were nice and supportive and I really liked working with them and try new activities like coasteering.” Young Volunteer, Summer School 2016

As a Lifeworks Young Volunteer you will have access to community projects training opportunities e.g. First Aid and Communication training; participate in the delivery of extraordinary events e.g. Breaking the Barrier and the Lifeworks Young Peoples Summer Ball and inform the development of our programme e.g. Young people interested in becoming film makers are currently working with Calling the Shots and Forkbeard Fantasy to develop a proposal to make a short art film for Channel 4 – click here for an update.
