I feel that I am contributing a solution to a social need − not just in the community in which I worked, but the skills I have gained can now benefit a wider community if I continue to practice them. I couldn't have guessed I would feel this way. It's much better than I expected. I feel I have made a positive mark on humankind (however small) that cannot be undone. It is so inspiring. Grit Volunteer
Grit volunteers describe their experience of the coaching training.
If you are interested in making a difference by donating your time or expertise, you can volunteer in a variety of ways on Grit programmes. Volunteer roles include coaching a young person, supporting at events, joining a youth enrolment team or you may have your own idea about how you could donate your unique skill/expertise to Grit.
As a Grit volunteer you will receive training in our unique methodology which raises your own self-awareness, enhancing the contribution you can make to others. Our vast database of generous and talented volunteers tells us that many of you repeat your involvement with us several times over, sometimes for ten years or longer. Why? Because Grit volunteers not only contribute a vast amount, they benefit enormously too through their own training and supervision, as well as the rewards of enabling transformation to take place.
Volunteer Role: Community adults needed
Location: East London
Do you want to connect and join with like-minded people in making a difference to your community?
Grit is dedicated to creating belonging with young people and communities. We need your input to create a new vision for young people in East London.
Building on the success of our recent pan-London Youth Congress Community Transformation Programme, delivered in partnership with Prevista Ltd, we are proposing a radical five-year programme for the communities of East London to create belonging, aspiration and safety, at a time of increasing fragmentation.
To kick-start this process we want to build a consortium of public, private and voluntary sector organisations/services to co-design and deliver the project with us. But we need the energy and input of the community, if we are to fulfil on our ambition to engage over 1000 aspirational adults to support 500 young people in transforming their lives.
Do you want to know more about our ideas and how you can get involved?
Come along to one of our information sessions to find out more about our ideas, share your ideas with us: hear from our current partners, past volunteers and young people.
Sessions will take place at NEWTEC, 1 Mark Street, Stratford E15 4GY from 6-7.30pm on the dates below:
Wednesday 7th November and Tuesday 13th November
Get involved! Come along to support us in the development of this exciting programme that has a real chance of transforming communities in East London.
