Speyside Youth are a registered charity whose key aim is to advance the citizenship of young people primarily those living within the Moray community boundaries of Speyside and Dufftown and District, through a structured programme of support, opportunity and activity provided by our team of Youth Workers.
Our vision is to provide opportunities for the young people, help them to develop life skills and empower them to make a difference in the community. We are very much a youth led organisation with our youth committee being supported and mentored by our Advisory Group & Trustees.
We have monthly Advisory Group/Trustee meetings (usually on a Monday evening), for approx 2 hours, in Dufftown Community Centre.
We currently have 5 Trustees however we are looking for 2 or 3 new members who can bring fresh, new ideas to our group and help ensure we can continue to offer this valuable project to the young people of Speyside.
Volunteers/members should be 17yrs or over, as specified in our constitution.
No formal qualifications necessary however if you can relate to young people, are willing to play an active role in supporting our young people, and have the enthusiasm and commitment to help.
We hold our meetings in Dufftown Community Centre however volunteers would need to make their own travel arrangements.
Any volunteer would have the opportunity to come along to one of our Youth Café evenings to find out what Speyside Youth is all about. This would be an opportunity to meet our Youth Workers and also some of our Youth Committee members (our young people). If happy to take up the opportunity, we would then take any volunteer through our constitution, structure, risk register, current funding, and any other key policies/documentation.
If you think you can help support Speyside Youth and are interested in finding out more about who we are, what we do, and the difference we make to young peoples’ lives, please contact Elaine by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
