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.firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01625 503740 to talk it through with Rachel our Learning Plus Supervisor.
