Youth Volunteering

Ambassador Programme
We are currently working with ten young people who have successfully completed Ambassador training and are supporting our youth work provision for 2016. 

We will begin recruiting again in September 2016 and would like to hear from any young person aged 16-18 who has taken part on any NCS, Clubs leaders, or Young Carers or Splash programmes as well as other youth leadership programme and would be interested in becoming a Youth Action Wiltshire Ambassador.

For more information please contact Cleo Evans - Youth Programmes Coordinator on 01380 729813 or 07730812758 or email cleo@youthactionwiltshire.org

C4CK
Credits For Caring Kids is our volunteering and training project for Young Carers, offering qualifications such as First Aid, Food Hygiene, V and Leadership awards. Young people can gain credits to recognise their volunteering which can be saved towards something which benefits their long term health and well being.
