Secondary Club night at St Barnabas Church
**Call for short term volunteers**
At Cre8 we run an alternative education project called Learning Plus. We get referrals from schools to work with young people who severely struggle in mainstream education. Many of our referrals enjoy doing practical, hands-on tasks. Unfortunately at the minute we don’t have the expertise within our staff team to offer many practical sessions.
We’re looking for volunteers who enjoy making or fixing things to volunteer a couple of hours a week, for a short fixed period, to work on a specific project with a young person. This could be making a planter, some shelves or anything else – the limit is your imagination (and whether we can get our hands on the right resources!).
You would be working with a young person in our well-equipped woodwork shed and be accompanied by a fully qualified youth worker. You don’t need any specific qualifications just some experience of wielding a hammer or screwdriver and enthusiasm. We envisage a project lasting 4-6 weeks so it would be a short term commitment and each session is 2 hours long.
You would need to follow our volunteer recruitment process which involves an application form, references, DBS check and interview.
If this is something that interests you please get in touch: Rachel.email@example.com or on 01625 503740 to talk it through with Rachel our Learning Plus Supervisor.
We particularly encourage those that have a specific passion in one of these areas as the young people get easily inspired by enthusiastic volunteers...
If you're interested, what to do next?
Does your company encourage employees to volunteer your skills and time for a number of hours per year? or on a short term basis during a particular week or month?
If so, there are just a few steps you or your company can take to become a regular or one off volunteer to help Cre8 get in early and support young people who haven't always had an easy start to life.
Get in touch with Katy 01625 503740 or firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about how Cre8 and your organisation can work together.
