Volunteering Opportunities with My Future My Choice Events

Events generally require no prior knowledge, just a willingness to mentor and support a small team of young people through challenges that are explained on the day. No training needed, just a 20-minute briefing to start the day. Specialist facilitators and school staff accompany children in teams at all times and DBS checks are not required by volunteers.
