About this Event

Young people are a great resource for your organisation. They can bring energy, fresh ideas, and a whole new skill-set.

If you would like to welcome young volunteers to your organisation, there are a few things you must consider in order to ensure their volunteering experience with you is safe and positive. This half-day training session will cover everything you need to know about recruiting, safeguarding and supporting young volunteers. It will include:

  • The types of roles which could attract a young person
  • What paperwork, policies and procedures are required
  • Supervision of the volunteer
  • Parental consent

This session is aimed organisations that are interested in recruiting young volunteers, including Duke of Edinburgh students. There will also be the opportunity to address any concerns you may have.

You trainer will be Helen Fielden, Volunteer Development Officer at Spark Somerset. Helen has an interest in supported volunteering and getting more young people involved in their local community. During her career in the voluntary sector, Helen has trained young people as mystery shoppers to assess sexual health services, coordinated an an HIV and AIDS awareness programme in South Africa, and delivered training to professionals in a range of settings, including VCSEs, medical staff and foster carers.
