Role and Opportunity Details  (You must be 18+ to apply for this role)

Youth and Community Volunteer

We are looking for a Youth and Community volunteer to join our team working with LGBTQ+ 11-18 year olds.

We have a youth-led and arts-based approach to our work. This year our young people are completing their Bronze Arts Awards in conjunction with Manchester Pride.

You will be busy making art, providing support and signposting, going on adventures and eating fun snacks with our fabulous group of young people!

We can provide DBS certificates, Safeguarding training, First Aid training and Youth and Community Work training as required.

 

Specific Skills Required

Good communication and enthusiasm to work with young people is key!

Experience in youth work and an interest in art is desirable but we also work with people who are looking to start their journey in youth and community work and can help provide work experience, references and qualifications.

 

Benefits of Volunteering with this organisation

We Are Explorers is a growing arts-based LGBTQ+ organisation that is based in Leigh but has outreach in Bolton and Salford. We are a small, close-knit team that have a lot of fun as well as working well together.

We have an online staff server, regular board meetings and social events.

We can help those who are interested in gaining Level 2 and/or Level 3 Youth and Community Work qualifications.

The organisation is on track to achieve charitable status this year, which makes this an exciting time to join us as we undergo significant growth and change.
