Starting in time for the next academic year, we are delighted to be introducing new volunteering placements with Just Youth. The placement will consist of a year working and living with us up in Salford, in and around Greater Manchester. Over the year, you’ll work as part of the team–as a youth minister–where you’ll be gaining for a whole range of skills and key life experiences.

From learning how to plan and prepare activities for primary school children in the office to helping to deliver interactive game lessons to secondary school pupils, you’ll get to know every part of the process. You’ll work with young people from as young as 3 (in nursery) to as old as 19 (in sixth form), but you’ll also get plenty of opportunities to get involved with the local community as well whether it’s getting involved in the local parish or the Spiritan community. You’ll experience the highs and lows, smooth sails and rock roads, joys and tribulations of youth ministry. It may even help you to discern your future career. It’s the experience of a lifetime packed into one busy but exciting year!
Fancy giving it a go? Email us: email@example.com with your name and contact details, and we’ll send you the application pack. Feel free to ask us any questions or arrange a chat with one of our outgoing volunteers. Placement starts at the end of August/beginning of September so don’t delay!
Need some time to think? That’s okay! We’ve got Tetris, Pacman, and even Mario Kart to keep you busy whilst you decide!
