INTERFAITH Volunteers with National Citizen Service programme, Redbidge



‘I believe that every young person should have the opportunity to spend time mixing with others from
different backgrounds, developing new skills that will stretch and challenge them, and learning about the importance of being active in their communities.’
Prime Minister David Cameron
JLGB are the lead provider of the government’s National Citizen Service programme in Redbridge for 150 16 year olds from across the borough this summer. National Citizen Service is a fun, challenging programme which will help participants to learn new skills and build their confidence.

National Citizen Service includes fun and challenging activities, away-from-home residential experiences and a self-designed social action project. It aims to promote a more cohesive, responsible and engaged society by bringing young people from very different backgrounds together to make a difference in their communities.

JLGB are hoping to engage participants from all faiths and cultural backgrounds, and as such hope to attract a diverse team of volunteers. 
The NCS programme is a three week programme, two weeks of which will be residential and the third of which will be based in Redbridge, plus a flexible 30 hours volunteering period which is essential for completion of a young person’s NCS. We need help from enthusiastic volunteers to make this exciting project happen! 
We are looking for up to 80 volunteers:
- Up to 20 Team Volunteers for each week of this three week programme, whose duties include supporting the Team Leader in running activities and leading guided discussions, and helping members to problem solve, bond with team members, and develop ideas for and plan their own social action project.
Volunteers can choose to do either one, two or three weeks (they get weekends off!).
- Professionals or keen amateurs needed to run sessions during 19th – 23rd August only, a 1 week residential based in Redbridge, to help young people to learn new skills.
We would like volunteers who could stay for all 5 days and run different workshops each day or people who can offer one day’s tuition for young people in the following areas: Sports and sports coaching; media, film and journalism; cookery; ‘green’ issues and environmental social action; photography.
- Up to 10 volunteers to act as Support Staff for each of the three weeks ; willing to help set up and tidy up after daily activities, occasionally help team leaders where needed, and organise and set up evening entertainments, mealtimes etc.
The dates for the three weeks are:
13th-17th August – Residential based in Colchester – Sports and outdoors activities
19th-23rd August – Residential based in Redbridge – Skills workshops
27th-31st August – Redbridge based, working from a local school – designing social action projects
All reasonable expenses are paid and travel to and from residential weeks is covered. Food and lodgings are provided during residential stays. If volunteering during the third week, it would be easier for volunteers to be based/ staying in Redbridge/East London.
To apply to be a volunteer or to discuss how we can organise a volunteering opportunity to suit you,
please contact the NCS team:
