Volunteer with the youth service

Can you inspire future generations? Do you want to share your skills? Do you want to boost your CV? Whether it’s DIY, computing, music production or any other talent, we want people with the enthusiasm to pass on their skills to the next generation.

You can do what you love for a couple of hours a week and you'll never work in an environment that is more challenging, rewarding and exciting.

Deadline for applications: Monday, 11 January 2021
