Volunteer with Denbighshire Youth Service
We have various opportunities to volunteer across our projects throughout Denbighshire. Volunteers are able to access free training and support to develop their skills and knowledge of working with young people.
Volunteering doesn’t have to be a big commitment, but having volunteers to support our sessions for as little as three hours per week helps us to ensure that we can provide youth work sessions across the county, that young people can come along too and participate in.
Volunteer placements often lead to paid work or help support participants in accessing courses or employment within related fields.
We welcome volunteers for Denbighshire Youth Service aged 18 and over and all we ask is that you have an interest in working with young people.
Types of activities volunteers can become involved in:
- help deliver youth work sessions
- lead or support the delivery of sports, arts and crafts and cooking as part of our project based work
- support the delivery of the D of E Award, helping young people to learn navigational skills and to get into the outdoors.
- provide holiday programmes for young people through helping to organise and staff trips, visits or sessions either as staff or by driving the mini bus.
- participate in the Young leaders programme (under 18s)
