Youth support worker volunteer - Search

Our volunteers have the opportunity to help at various programmes we run. Our core activities are youth clubs and holiday/summer programmes. The Friday night club is a faith based youth club that works with children aged 6-9 and 10-14 on a weekly basis allowing them to develop their emotional, physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. This is done through games, team building, personal development programmes, prayer, arts and crafts, music, dance and much more. We also have regular social outings such as trips to the cinema or bowling. Our ‘Mol an Oige’ (praise the youth) faith based summer scheme takes place in July each year for children aged 5 – 11. The focus is on building self-confidence, Christian Community and creating memories of faith in action that will last a lifetime! Fun filled weeks of themed games and activities, prayer, arts and crafts, dance, sports & circus skills, treasure hunts, musical activities, cookery & much more. We also facilitate residentials for young people aged 15-18 twice annually. Volunteers will receive training, support and supervision throughout, with regular opportunities to take part in accreditated training such as OCNs in Youth Work.. This opportunity is particularly relevant for those young people doing Pope John Paul II awards or Duke of Edinburgh awards needing to build up their volunteer experience, as well as volunteers who are looking for new opportunities or perhaps considering a career in youth work. If you have skills in the creative arts, music or sports we can develop opportunities for volunteers to use these skills in our programmes.
