Young Volunteers Club

Our Saturday Young Volunteers Club is underway with supervised sessions running from 10am – 12pm and 12pm – 2pm. The aim is to engage with young people using bikes as the medium and then support them to grow their confidence, self-esteem and interpersonal skills alongside their mechanical skills.

Volunteering is a brilliant way for people of all ages to meet new people, gain workplace experience, develop their skills and even gain accredited qualifications all whilst helping others. Opportunities for young people to volunteer can be few and far between which is why we felt it was really important that we create a program specifically for young people.

Our program for young people has previously been funded by the Shears Foundation, St Hilda’s Trust, Children’s Institute and Mission and Wellbank Foundation, Byker and Ouseburn Wards. This year the provision is funded by Peter Harrison Foundation.

We’ve developed a theory of change (below) to set out what impact we anticipate the program will have and a skills (bike) wheel to measure progress in the areas we’ve identified.
