Children’s Volunteers

Shifts: 1-4pm, 2-5.30pm, or 3-6.30pm on Sundays

Minimum commitment: 2 sessions per month for at least 6 months

We’re looking for more children’s volunteers to be part of Akwaaba’s Children’s Space, which has around 40 children and young people between the ages of 3-16 each week.  We need people to:

  • provide a supportive, safe, friendly and fun environment for children and young people

  • help resolve conflicts between children and respond with care and empathy to challenging behaviour

  • facilitate and assist with children’s activities

  • supervise children and/or children’s areas

  • listen to and recognise our young members and the difficulties they face

  • build strong relationships with our young members and support them to be involved in shaping Akwaaba’s children’s project

Prior experience with children is essential. A DBS check will be required if you do not have a valid certificate from within the last 6 months. We can help with this.

If you’d like to apply or have questions, we’d love to hear from you — please email kids@akwaaba.org.uk
