Get Set for Volunteering Free 6-Week Course
Beginning 4th May 2017 (1.00-3.00pm)
at Community House, 46-50 East Parade, Harrogate, HG1 5RR

Are you looking for an opportunity to build your skills, boost your confidence or refresh your CV?

Get Set for Volunteering is a short course specially designed for people who are not currently working but are interested in finding out more about volunteering. You might be looking to volunteer as a way to get back into the workplace or simply as a way to boost your confidence and get that feel good factor.

During the sessions we will look at what volunteering involves. We will identify local volunteer roles which match your skills and interests. There will be plenty of opportunity to chat to fellow course participants who are also considering volunteering for the first time.

The course is open to a maximum of 10 people. Our experienced tutor will guide you through the world of volunteering and answer any questions you have. If at the end of the course you decide you would like to volunteer we do offer extra help with completing application forms if you require.

If you have any queries about the course please get in touch by phoning Rachel Kingdom on 01423 504074.

Student Volunteering Week 2017

It's Student Volunteering Week and so we thought we'd take the opportunity to highlight a few of the local roles available to under 18s. Volunteering is a great way to gain references, experience for your CV or UCAS form and to learn more about different types of careers. The roles below can be carried out at the weekend or in the evening.

Correspondance with... Dancing for Wellbeing

This month we'd like to thank Dorothy who shared her story with us about how she got involved in volunteering for Dancing for Well-Being

“It was whilst volunteering with a dementia group that I first met Jackie Terry and discovered the wonderful world of Dancing for Well-Being.
