Why not volunteer with us?
Volunteering at Biddulph Youth and Community Zone-
Is a way to both support your local community, enhance your skills and have a lot of fun along the way.
The Zone needs your help to recruit a committed core of volunteers across a wide range of projects to ensure we deliver a world-class service to Biddulph. Volunteering or mentoring at The Youth and Community Zone will enable you to be at the heart of a world class project that will turn around the options and opportunities for young people & the community.
Whilst you’ll want to make a real difference when you volunteer, it’s not just about what you can do for others. Here are some of the things that volunteering can do for you:
- Give your CV a boost – Time Bank recently did a survey of some of the UK’s leading businesses and 73%* said they’d employ someone who’s volunteered over someone who hasn’t
Get back into work – It’s a great way to get a reference and fill gaps in your work experience. You can also try out different types of work to get a taster – which can really help you if you’re looking for a job or want to change direction
- Improve your confidence – You’ll learn and do things that you might not normally get the chance to – this can be a real confidence boost
- Improve your health – While you’re busy giving back to your community you could also be getting healthier! Research has found that volunteering can do everything from helping you to sleep better to boosting your immune system
Meet new people – You’ll probably meet people from different cultures and backgrounds that you might not normally. Volunteering with people who are as passionate about improving the opportunities for you people, as you are, is a great way to meet like-minded people.
