Without volunteers, the huge range of opportunities for young people in Essex wouldn’t be
As a Youth Service, we are extremely passionate about making sure all young people in
Essex have access to good quality opportunities and activities. Places to take part in
activities which will develop them as people. Working with people who believe they can
bring out the best in them.
Volunteers make a massive difference to young people’s lives, whether they are running
sports, opening a youth club, fundraising, sitting on a committee, helping young people be
creative or making hot chocolate and having a chat. Volunteers in Essex brings
enthusiasm and passion to their work with young people.
It’s important to us that our volunteers reflect the communities they live in. We welcome
all ages, ethnicities and personal histories. Young people’s experiences are all unique and
it’s helpful for them to talk to people from different backgrounds
What skills do I need?
Experience is useful, but not essential as you will work alongside youth workers who will
support you to develop the skills you need. We offer training to all volunteers with an
option to do a nationally recognised qualification.
