BYHP is a small charity with 7 employees (4 full time & 3 part time) which relies on the amazing support of a number of volunteers to support 200-300 young people a year.
BYHP's volunteers come from a range of walks of life and are a range of ages.
Increasingly young people who have accessed and benefitted from BYHP's services come back to help as volunteers, either as they realise what they have gained and want to give back or as a way to continue their skills to help them become ready for paid work.
BYHP's volunteers undertake roles such as helping at the weekly Job Club, helping young people write CVs and apply for jobs, they manage and organise the Foodbank which the young people have access to, they help set up and manage the laptops & other technology we use for Job Club and the Unlocking Potential training course and they use the food donated by local supermarkets and severed to us by Food for Charities and make delicious, nutritional lunches and dinners for the young people who access those services.
See the bios of some of our volunteers here: http://www.byhp.org.uk/our-volunteers.html
BYHP also attends and organises a number of events throughout the year and volunteers make up a substantial part of the teams who promote BYHP's work to the public and help raise awareness and funds to continue that work.
We are always looking to add people to our list of volunteers and a range of roles are available here: http://www.byhp.org.uk/jobs.html
If you interested, contact us and we will send you an application form, we will ask you in for a chat to discuss options to see if there is a role which is the right fit for both you and BYHP.
We are very keen to make the volunteer experience a great one for both sides and so will only move forward with a potential volunteer if everything works, as we know a volunteer's time is precious and so we want the time spent at BYHP to be rewarding and fulfilling.
Our blog is a great way to stay up to date with current events and projects, stories from our young people and the general goings on at BYHP.
