Do you have time to spare to help a young person or adult?  Can you offer encouragement, inspiration and support?

Volunteering for Adviza will offer you an interesting and rewarding opportunity to help people reach their full potential, whilst receiving full support and training. We recruit volunteers to work with us on a variety of programmes across the Thames Valley, supporting young people and adults to overcome their barriers and achieve their full potential.

Volunteer feedback:

“I use my experience to help people with the next steps they want to take in their lives.”
"Being a volunteer with Adviza is fascinating and worthwhile, with lots of back-up."
"Right from the start I was made to feel both very welcome and also valued which has been great."

Volunteers wanted for our Prince's Trust Team programme

Adviza is the Delivery Partner for our Prince’s Trust Team programme in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, delivering in Reading, Slough and Aylesbury.

Team is a personal development programme for 16 – 25 year olds who are not in education, employment or training.  During the 12 weeks young people will experience working on a local community project, a residential experience, two weeks work experience placement and end with a presentation.  Through these activities young people will develop team work, communication skills, build confidence and achieve a qualification.

We recruit volunteers to join the young people on Team to support them on their journey and help them successfully complete the 12 week programme. 

The role of the volunteer on Team is to engage the young people and support them through the 12 week programme on a one-to-one basis and as a group.  Volunteers can be great role models for the young people and can share their own life and employment knowledge and experiences to help the young people overcome the challenges they will face on Team.

Benefits of volunteering on Team:

  • Building and maintaining relationships with young people
  • Facilitating group workshops
  • Understanding local services available to young people
  • Developing team work
  • Supporting a residential experience
  • Supporting young people through a Level 1 qualification

If you would like to be a part of the Team experience we ask that volunteers are able to commit to a minimum of 15 days across the 12 week programme.  This is so that you are able to build the relationships with the young people and see the development of the participants from start to finish.

For more information please contact Lee Teideman: 0774 776 0882 leeteideman@adviza.org.uk

As part of this volunteering opportunity you will have an enhanced DBS completed by Adviza.

 


This organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
