Event description
Orientation Day for New and Existing Volunteers

About this event

Come along to find out more about the work of the Super Power Agency, the charity which empowers young people through creative writing workshops. Throughout the day we'll be explaining how we work with under-resourced young people (aged 8-18), what workshops we offer and how you can work with us to volunteer. We'll be offering training for those interested in volunteering, or who have just started working with us, as well as the chance to talk to the team about the SPA. This will also be an opportunity for our existing volunteers to come along to refresh their knowledge after a year of programmes being on pause. And a great way for everyone to meet ahead of the next academic year.

Lunch will be provided, so please let us know if you have any dietary requirements. Email claire@superpoweragency.com if you have any access requirements which you would like us to know about. 

The training day will be held in Edinburgh - venue to be confirmed. We are also keeping a close eye on government regulations and will ensure the day is covid complaint and safe for everyone.

FAQs

My spelling is terrible! Can I still help? 

Yes! We need nice, supportive people to work with us. We have people who can help with editing (grammar nerds are also welcome), so the main skill we need is the ability to listen. Spelling isn't the most important part of our work: we try and increase confidence in academic skills, but stories and how we tell them are at the heart of our programme.

I don't have any experience working with children. Can I still help?

Of course. We will give you lots of guidance on how we work with our young people. We cover the cost of the PVG checks whether you are already a scheme member or not.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Email claire@superpoweragency.com if you'd like to ask or tell us anything!
