what will i be doing?
Social isolation and loneliness is a huge issue in the Moray Area. As a volunteer group leader, you would work alongside another member/s of the team to assist with group activities including arts, crafts, cooking, sports, music which can help to improve the health and wellbeing or our young people.
the impact you can make
You would look to introduce them to new activities to help them learn new skills and develop new interests. Group leaders can volunteer from age 14 and over and don’t have to have previous experience of volunteering or working with young people. For our groups having a volunteer can make such a positive impact on their lives and help change their future. Through groups you can develop confidence and self-belief to achieve life goals.
the benefits to you
As a volunteer you will gain practical experience of spending time with children and young people and increase your knowledge about the issues affecting young people. You will meet a range of new people and be filled with a sense of satisfaction, knowing that you have helped make a difference in a child or young persons life.
