Volunteering - with Young People | or on our Board of Directors

Volunteers are the bedrock of the Citadel's service. We always need more volunteers to work with children and young people in our youth clubs. We provide training and support and will offer you an experience you'll never forget!

Volunteering with young people

We are always looking for people who:

  • Really enjoy being with children and young people
  • Are reliable, enthusiastic and committed
  • Are open minded, non judgmental and respectful
  • Have a sense of humour and are open to trying new things

We do not require people to have any experience of working with children and young people.

Working in our youth clubs is really fun and you can choose which age group you would like to work with.

Our clubs run during school terms for 10 weeks per term.

To find out more about our different clubs and projects head to our Youth Zone.

Check out the links on the right to find out how to get involved!
