There are several ways you can help LGBT Youth Scotland as a volunteer:
Helping with those vital tasks that keep us running! Assist us during the day with various pieces of office administration, such as filing and data entry. This opportunity is available in our Edinburgh and Glasgow Offices.
Be an online youth worker. Provide one-to-one support, info and advice to young people online in live chat and by email. This opportunity is offered in our Edinburgh office only.
Participation volunteers support young people in their peer education roles; including public speaking, design and delivery of workshops, and accreditation. This opportunity is available in our Edinburgh and Glasgow Offices.
Talent pool volunteer
Help us out on an ad-hoc basis with things like events and fundraisers, or donate any useful specialist skills you might have! This opportunity is available in all areas.
Youth group volunteer
Youth group volunteers help facilitate regular LGBT youth groups, working face-to-face with young people in a supportive environment. Previous experience of working with young people under 26 is preferred.
This opportunity is available in all areas with a LGBTYS run youth group. We currently have a need in the following areas: Dumfries / East Dunbartonshire / Perth / Selkirk – These areas will be prioritised in the next intake group.
We recruit and train our volunteers throughout the year. We want to make sure that you have all the knowledge and skills to really make a difference for LGBT young people and that you feel prepared and confident when you start your volunteering with us.
