We have an established volunteering team which is integral to the work of Leeds Youth Offending Service. There are in excess of 60 volunteers who volunteer with us in a variety of roles. This may be as a mentor supporting young people on a one to one basis, helping to plan individual programmes of work to reduce risk of future offending or supporting young people in the police station following their arrest.
If successful following interview, we ask all volunteers to complete our foundation and role specific training modules and to undertake a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) application.
We recruit for volunteering at different times in the year as the need arises within the specific roles. If you are interested in volunteering with us and want to know more, please get in contact to discuss things further. You can use our e-mail address to raise any specific questions that you have.
- Volunteers should be 21 years or over for the roles that we currently work with.
- Foundation and role specific training will be provided for all volunteers.
- And we ask for a minimum commitment of ideally12 months to match the time given for training and development.
