Youth Volunteering Panel Member

The Youth Panel for youth volunteering: help make a difference to young volunteers in Leicester and Leicestershire.

About the opportunity

Do you feel that as a young person there aren’t many opportunities for you to volunteer? If so, we’d love to hear your ideas and opinions!

The Volunteering Youth Panel is a collective of young people age 16-24, working with Voluntary Action Leicestershire to develop new, dynamic and enjoyable volunteering opportunities in Leicester and Leicestershire.

Members will have a voice across the organisation, attend panel meetings and act as consultants on projects. It’s a flexible and friendly group that provides you with a safe space to share your thoughts and ideas.

Our vision:

-          Create and develop new youth volunteering roles

-          Empower and engage organisations to work with young people

-          Work with youth organisations and develop partnerships

-          Provide a platform to promote opportunities specifically for young people

-          Help members develop their personal and professional skills

-          Connect young people with local communities

 

Volunteers will have dedicated support from Voluntary Action Leicestershire who will lead, mentor and assist the group. We will run group sessions and one-to-one meetings that will inform a wide range of projects. The most important thing is having your input on what you would like to see happen!

Tasks will include:

-          Sharing ideas, knowledge and opinions

-          Actively engaging with the public and young people to promote youth volunteering

-          Co-developing content and design for guidance and website

-          Co-ordinating programme delivery and pitches

 

What will you get out of it?

-          Project Management and/or coordination experience

-          Meet new people and make new connections

-          Develop transferable skills that will help you into employment

-          Be a part of a strong support system

-          A reference to use for future employment/education opportunities

We hope to hear from you soon. If you have any questions please email zuli.s@valonline.org.uk.
