When We Need You
From 07/12/2011 onwards
Youth work in our Royston based youth building. The activities vary from pool, table-tennis, other sports to computing/games, karaoke, arts and crafts. All volunteers have the opportunity to attend training suited to their needs for their own personal development. If you cannot commit to one night per week, perhaps being available for trips and residentials, or as a driver would be a good alternative. Volunteers are also provided with corporate clothing. HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED? You should contact Royston Youth Action for an informal chat ideally by email or phone using the contact details on the right/select the APPLY button. If you do not receive a response within 2 working days, please contact the Volunteer Centre. After submitting the application form there will be an interview. It generally takes around 2 weeks after you contact us to get you started.
