Volunteer with Us

Inspire Youth Zone is proud to be inclusive of all abilities. We really believe in the value and power of volunteering. Our volunteers are integral to our success and truly are part of the team. They are at the heart of what we offer to young people – that’s why a culture of volunteering and an enhanced volunteering programme has been embedded into Inspire since we opened.

Our passionate volunteers generously give their time to support and make a positive difference to the lives of young people across the country. The diversity of their backgrounds means they bring a wide range of skills, experiences, ability and interests.

Whether it is working one to one with a young person or delivering an inclusive cooking session, you will help all young people develop the social and life skills they need to be an independent and confident person.

Skills Required:

  • Supportive and patient
  • Creative and fun in the activities you are involved with and/or plan
  • Friendly and approachable
  • A willingness to join in with the activities
  • A good motivator (getting young people involved)
  • Ability to adapt ideas 

For more information on Volunteering, check out the various volunteering roles we have available and complete our volunteer application form.

We also recruit Young Leaders aged 15 to 18 from our membership of young people to support on our Junior Club and Holiday Club sessions. To learn more, click here!

We couldn’t exist without our volunteers, and we wouldn't want to either.
