Free2B are recruiting volunteer youth workers to help us deliver our weekly senior youth club – the Gap. The Gap youth club runs every Friday in the Clapham Junction area 6-8pm for LGBTQ+ young people aged 13-19 (our address is not advertised to safeguard our members). We appreciate that giving up every Friday evening may not be appealing! So, we are seeking volunteers who can commit to one rota’d Friday per month at Gap.
What are we looking for?
- Experience of group work with young people.
- A grounded and thought through understanding of LGBTQ+ issues.
- The skills to handle sensitive issues including those relating to sexuality & gender and personal relationships, in an appropriate, professional and confidential manner.
- Please note, in order to volunteer at our youth groups, volunteers must be at least 21 years old as we have found there are boundary issues where youth members and volunteers are of a similar or same age.
