Football Volunteers

Shift: 3-6.30pm on Sundays

Minimum commitment: 1 session per month for at least 6 months

We’re looking for more Football 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:

  • oversee the 5-a-side football for children aged 7+ in the football enclosure or engage younger children in the playground with football

  • 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

  • support all children to participate in football and feel included and valued, regardless of ability

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

Prior experience with children is essential, but this needn’t have been in a football context. 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
