Could you help our Corry Capers kids have fun and learn new skills? With Volunteers Week coming up we are pleased to share some exciting new volunteer opportunities.
We have two very different roles available with our outdoor learning programme: a learning support volunteer and site work volunteer. Details below. If you’d like to know more or have an informal chat about either of these roles just get in touch with Tracy Keenan, Outdoor Learning Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
Corry Capers – learning support volunteer
Help children connect to nature, learn skills and have fun! We have an opportunity for volunteers to join our Corry Capers outdoor learning sessions on a Friday (1-4). Working alongside qualified staff you’ll give additional support to the young people as they get involved in den-making, fire-building, crafts, campfire cooking, woodworking and lots more rural related skills. No teaching experience is needed, just enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in! This role is subject to the Disclosure Scotland PVG scheme.
We’d also love to hear from people with craft/rural skills who would like to share their skills with young people at a one-off session.
Outdoor learning – site work volunteer
Do you enjoy hands-on practical work? Do you like being outdoors? We’re looking for people who can help improve and maintain our Outdoor Learning site. This is the woodland space used by our Corry Capers after school/holiday group and other learning activities.
There are a variety of jobs to get involved in, from repairing paths to building woodland structures. Timings can be flexible around your own commitments. We are particularly looking for people able to give a regular commitment, though we would also like to build up a pool of volunteers willing to help on one-off tasks such as path clearance.
For the regular volunteer posts, much of the work will be self-directed so some experience in DIY or other practical work will be needed, though support will be given.
