About FetLor Youth Club
FetLor Youth Club provides a safe environment for young people ages 7-17 from across north Edinburgh. They can receive support and gain life skills through taking part in a range of activities and opportunities offered at the club.
We are looking for people who enjoy interacting with young people and want to make a positive difference to their lives. We prefer volunteers who have experience working with young people. Ideally volunteers have a particular skill or interest they would like to share as part of our programme.
A half day induction session will take place prior to the start of volunteering. Internal training is delivered on health and safety procedures and child protection. A volunteer handbook is issued. Certified training opportunities can be discussed with long term volunteers.
Flexibility & Commitment
We ask our volunteers to support us for a minimum of around 3 hours a week, the equivalent of one youth club. We ask for a commitment of at least one school term (Sept-Dec/Jan-Apr/Apr-Jun) to ensure continuity for young people and hope many of our volunteers will want to build long term relationships. Hours can be flexible, Clubs run from 1530-2030. We would ask for a commitment of one school term to ensure continuity for young people.
