Volunteering @ Wigan Youth Zone

Opportunity Provider: Wigan Youth Zone

Volunteering at Wigan Youth Zone is a great way to get involved with your community, make a difference, enhance your skills and of course have fun along the way.

Volunteering is integral to what we do here at Wigan Youth Zone. Our fantastic bank of volunteers means that we have access to a wide range of skills, experiences and knowledge that young people can aspire to and learn from.

With such a wide range of opportunities to be involved with, volunteering can open up new opportunities for you as well. Whether you want to share your skills, learn new ones or challenge yourself to do something new, we have a role to suit you. You can work face to face with the young people or behind the scenes helping with administration or event planning.

Here are just a few reasons why people volunteer at Wigan Youth Zone:
  • Make a difference to the lives of others
  • Gain confidence and self esteem
  • Help those less fortunate
  • A new hobby
  • Training opportunities
  • Enhance a CV
  • A career change
  • Improve employment prospects
  • Meet new people and friends
  • To socialise

As a volunteer you will undertake a full training programme to make sure you are equipped for your role, confident and feel integrated into our team. You will also have the opportunity to undertake further training. All our volunteers also undergo a DBS check at enhanced level.

Of course we also make sure we take the time to recognise the hard work of all our volunteers, from a simple thank you to our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ award and an annual Volunteer Celebration.
