We are always looking for volunteers. You could work with us on a long-term work placement, or it could be to cover one of our summer projects. Whatever you do with us, we will make sure you are fully trained and that you get the very best support and experience.
Our aim is to create a Youth Panel, where we give young people a voice and a say in how the community should be supporting them. We will provide opportunities to go to events and get involved with a whole range of activities.
If you are aged between 14 and 24 and would like to join us, please get in touch.
Our summer projects are often one day a week over a five week period. If you are looking for some short-term work experience and would like an insight into working with children and young people, please get in touch.
As part of our partnership with Newcastle University, we provide a year's work placement for a Psychology undergraduate. This is a true partnership in that we get an amazing young person to work with and they get some great experiences to help them decide on a career path that they would like to take after graduating. We go through a formal application process for this through the Newcastle University. If other institutions would like to get involved, please get in touch.
As part of your social value contribution as a company, you could volunteer to support us on one of our projects. A brilliant example is Haines Watts. As well as nominating us as their charity, they are providing workshops for LinkedIn profiles, mock interviews, and organising visits so that our young people can experience a working environment. Members of staff have also given up their time to conduct podcasts for our Careers section. It would be great if you could offer our young people work experience. We are always open to suggestions , if you can help, please get in touch.
