Want to do something truly amazing in 2024? Why not volunteer for WEST Youth Zone?

We are today launching out volunteer recruitment campaign as we prepare to move into our new home early in the New Year.

WEST is going to be a truly special place for young people with so many amazing facilities and activities, from sport to music, art to climbing, and cooking to dancing – it will have everything young people want and more!

But what will make the Youth Zone truly special is the incredible staff and volunteers inside it that support young people, helping them engage with new activities but also supporting them, be that through employability courses, their mental health or just providing a friendly face for a conversation.

Our staff team is already growing but there will also be space in the Youth Zone for those who want to give their time to help young people.

We have volunteering opportunities across all our youth work spaces. You may want to support on our rooftop MUGA or in the Sports Hall, maybe you cen help in a music session or just play some table tennis in our Rec Area and become a positive role model for young people.

As well as youth work opportunities, you could also volunteer with our Facilities team or on reception – the possibilities are endless!

WEST Volunteer Coordinator Shineade Burton said: “Volunteering is an amazing thing to do and I’m really excited to start recruiting some truly special people who want to give their time to support our charity.

“There are lots of opportunities to get involved. As well supporting young people, it’s a great way to enhance your own skills – it can build confidence, improve communication skills and it’s an amazing thing to add to your CV.

“You don’t need any experience and we’ll provide all the training, so please get in touch to find out more.”
