Our Volunteer Engagement and Activities Youth Workers are at the forefront of our sessions. Positioned within the recreation area, they help to create a fun, safe, supportive environment where they engage with young people in a variety of different ways; think playing pool, hosting FIFA tournaments or just having a chat with a young person. In doing so, you will help to build their confidence, social skills and overall wellbeing.

Our Catering and Tuck Shop Volunteers help us to provide young people with a hearty, affordable meal for only £1. They’re the friendly faces who support the smooth running of sessions by making sure bellies are full and minds are engaged. This allows us to run sessions for young people that build their confidence, social skills and overall wellbeing.

Could you spare 1-3 hours week?  Are you good role model?  Do you want to gain experience working with young people on a one to one basis?

The Mentoring Programme at Onside Warrington Youth Zone provides volunteer mentor support to children and young people aged between 7 and 19 years old. It increases confidence, self-esteem and supports the child/young person to make positive choices through 1:1 support, befriending and fun activities.  We are looking for a new team of Volunteer Mentors to act as role models and to support a young person through a difficult stage in their lives. Mentors must be age 18 years or older and be able to meet with a young person for 1-3 hours per week for a number of pre agreed months. No experience is necessary as full training will be given to all Mentors prior to being matched with a suitable young person. For more information please contact Lindsay on Lindsay.gibbons@wyz.org.uk
