Volunteer Youth Information and Advice Support Worker
Are you a natural problem solver with good communication skills? Do you want to help children and young people?
We are on the lookout for friendly volunteers with good communication skills to provide rights based information, advice and support to young people under 26 years old, in and around Southampton.
Working alongside Youth Advice Workers, you might find yourself in a therapeutic group, or an open advice session, at our open access drop in centre; at a school or college in Southampton or Eastleigh; at one of our various supported youth groups such as Teen Safe House or Safe House, or working with a young person, one to one in their home, on independent living skills. In all cases, you will be greeting young people, listening to them and supporting them to help them make informed decisions about their lives.
No prior experience is necessary as we offer a full training program and lots of support. Training requires a minimum of three days training usually delivered within one month. The training programmes start three times a year. Two programmes run on weekdays and one runs on Saturdays. You will need to have attended one of our Information Sessions and have completed an application form before you attend this training.
If you are interested in becoming one of our Youth Information, Advice and Support Volunteers then please read the information below, register to come along to an Information Session and get involved.
