Volunteering with us
Volunteering is a great way to get involved in exciting and rewarding projects, whilst also providing a helping hand to people in Wakefield. It is also a great first step and taster of what youth work is all about.
There are often opportunities in the Youth Work Team to help support the sessions and programmes, as well as contribute behind the scenes in areas such as social media and administration.
As part of volunteering, depending on your experience and what kind of role you want to get involved in with us, you may be asked to complete a programme of training, which includes elements such as safeguarding, policies, procedures, county lines, and responding to a range of scenarios.
If volunteering sounds of interest and you want more information, please contact the team on 01924 302665.
You can also register for volunteer opportunities in other areas of Wakefield Council here, or in your local area through Volunteer Wakefield.
