We welcome you to join us in voluntary work. Doing it will give you both enjoyment and additional content in your life!
Voluntary work can involve, for example:
• planning weekend evening programmes and carrying them out
• producing cultural and other events
• acting as a peer information person
• putting an idea of your own into practice
• acting as a voluntary adult supervisor
You can take part in planning weekend evenings and carrying out the plan. The training that youth volunteers receive at the special courses arranged for them will give you the necessary knowledge and skills. Voluntary adults are trained to handle weekend activities at youth centres alongside youth workers. This training qualifies you to work at a youth centre.
