Volunteering Opportunity; Southport Alchemy Youth Club

Would you like to help young people in Sefton learn new hobbies and skills or feel more listened to and supported?

If so, then Southport Alchemy Youth Club would love to hear from you!

Southport Alchemy Youth Club offers a safe and inclusive environment for young people aged 11-17.

The club, run by charity Parenting 2000, holds sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5.30pm to 8.30pm  at Alchemy Hall on Mornington Road, Southport.

As well as providing young people with  informal education sessions on a range of topics, the club offers advice, support and information to 11-17 year olds and hosts a range of activities and events.

The youth club is now seeking volunteers to help facilitate the sessions and provide young people with a friendly, listening ear.

Volunteering roles can be tailored to suit the amount of hours needed and a variety of volunteering roles opportunities are available, including:

  • Taking names and subs on the door.
  • Staffing the kitchen to make tea and toast for attendees.
  • Teaching young people a new hobby or skill such as playing cards, first aid or languages.
  • Supervising the outdoor recreation area and play equipment.
  • Teaching young people bicycle maintenance, as part of the affiliated ‘Tyred Rides’ community cycle project.

Working with children and young people requires a DBS check which would be funded for any volunteer successfully completing a three month probationary period.

For more information please contact Youth Worker Sue O’Connor at 01704 380 047 or email sue.o’connor@parenting2000.org.uk

Southport Alchemy Youth Club is grant funded by Sefton Council.
