VOLUNTEER VACANCY

MONDAY NIGHT HELPERS (OVER 18s)

Background of the role

Each Monday night we support around 70 young people with disabilities to take part in an exciting, adventurous Scouting programme.

We provide one to one support to all of the young people who join us. Each young person is assigned a volunteer for the evening to guides them through the programme, helps them with any specific support requirements and most importantly makes sure they are having a great time.

This is one of our most rewarding roles – working directly with the young people you will come away with a real sense of achievement from what you have been able to support the young person to do.

We have vacancies for volunteers to join all our sections on Monday nights so please get in touch if this might be of interest to you and we can have a conversation!

Details of the role

DAYS AND TIMES

We meet every Monday night (except for school holiday Mondays). The meetings start at 7pm and finish at 9pm with half an hour afterwards of de-brief and discussion for all volunteers.

WHERE THIS ROLE HAPPENS

Our sections meet in four different halls around the southside of Glasgow – in Cathcart, Newlands and Netherlee.

SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED

You don’t need any specific skills or past experience for this role. You should have an interest in supporting young people with disabilities and be enthusiastic and willing to get involved in the programme.

We will provide full induction and ongoing training and support.

RESTRICTIONS ON VOLUNTEERING FOR THIS ROLE

We have reached capacity in the number of 14 to 18 year old volunteers we have, so this role is restricted to those aged 18 and above.

You must be willing to join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme and undergo the essential training around safety and safeguarding.

TRAINING AND SUPPORT PROVIDED

If you apply for this role one of our volunteers will arrange to meet with you to chat through the role in full and answer any questions you have. You’ll then come along and join us for one week to see what it’s like, and if you decide to join us we’ll then complete the necessary paperwork.

Initially you’ll complete a series of flexible training modules covering background to Scouting, safety and safeguarding.

Ongoing training and support is provided throughout your time with us.
