Every year we recruit volunteers who access our services at Enthusiasm. The aim is to help our volunteers develop life skills, teamwork, problem solving, communication skills and a sense of belonging and giving back to their community.
The volunteers can get involved with all activities including sports, crafts, cooking projects, trips, excursions and much more.
We deliver a programme to support them to be a great volunteer and to enhance their CV. We have a qualified trainer who delivers some of the training and other elements are run by other specialists like our Educational Trustee who specialises in communication and inclusion.
The modules include awareness of safeguarding, child criminal and sexual exploitation, health and safety, first aid, equality and diversity, effective communication, dealing with challenging behaviour, teamwork, leadership and a project on social responsibility which volunteers design and deliver to their community.
