Volunteering

Opportunities

We have various opportunities to volunteer across our projects throughout Denbighshire. Volunteers are able to access free training and support to develop their skills and knowledge of working with young people. 

Volunteering doesn’t have to be a big commitment but having volunteers to support our sessions for as little as three hours per week, helping us to ensure that we can provide youth sessions across the county, that young people can come along too and take part in.

Volunteer placements often lead to paid work or help support participants in accessing courses or employment within other related fields.

We welcome volunteers for Denbighshire Youth Service aged 18 and over and ask that you have an interest in working with young people.

If you are under the age of 18 but still want to volunteer with the Youth Service please get in touch to learn more about our young leaders scheme.
