VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help out with the running of thriving youth clubs in Lowestoft.
The Youth & Connexions service this week sent out a call to locals to get involved in working with young people who attend the youth clubs at Morton Road, Colville House and Boston Lodge.
'All the clubs are very successful with lots of young people aged 13 to 19 attending,' a spokesman for the Youth & Connexions service said. 'The work is challenging, exciting and rewarding.'
'The volunteers are not expected to have any youth work experience and they would enhance the work we do, so if they have skills in sport, dance, drama, craft, IT, music or anything else this would add to the varied programme of activities on offer,' the spokesman said.
'All volunteers will be offered support and supervision and will need to complete an application form and enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check and will take part in an interview process. Training will be given, and this includes access to NVQ2 Understanding Youth Work, First Aid and diversity.'
Application forms and job descriptions are available from Colville House Youth Club in Colville Road.
