  • The Door runs a variety of youth club sessions for young people aged 8-25.
  • These include open sessions which are free for all young people to come along and hang out, get something to eat and take part in activities.
  • Youthwork volunteers work alongside The Door's amazing youthwork staff to provide activities, engage with young people and manage the day to day running of the sessions.
  • They are there to develop positive, supportive relationships with the young people, to be a source of encouragement
  • Engage in social activities including external trips or events
  • To be ready and willing to pass on his or her own skills and experiences to help the young people develop
  • To be a positive and active role model


Enthusiastic, friendly volunteers that want to get to know the young people we work with, to come alongside them and take part in activities together in session and out and about.

Practical Bits

  • Most youthwork sessions last 2 hours, volunteers would be expected to arrive no later than 15 minutes before a session and leave no sooner than 15 minutes after it has finished.
  • Volunteers are welcome to commit to as many or as few sessions a week / month as they wish but to help with rotas will need to be consistent with what they can offer.
  • We also encourage volunteers to take part in monthly Group Development sessions which happen once a month
  • Full training will be given and consists of 4 weekday evenings 7:30-9:30pm and 2 Saturday morning sessions 9am - 1pm
  • If you are unable to make all sessions a catch up will be provided.
  • Finally all applicants should be sympathetic to the Christian ethos of The Door.
