Learning & Activities Volunteers

Become a Learning & Activities Volunteer

The 999 Club offers homeless people the opportunity to develop employability and life skills, as well as improving their self-esteem and independence through a series of specially designed workshops.

You’ll assist our Learning & Activities Coordinator to plan, develop, introduce, deliver and evaluate workshops in two main areas: employability, which includes basic IT skills, reading and writing and employability skills; and self-development, which focuses on areas such as improving self-confidence, and communication skills.

You’ll need a balance of excellent communication and administrative skills, as well as confidence and enthusiasm. You’ll be working with people with varying degrees of vulnerability and challenging behaviour. It is not essential for you to have worked in the sector, but you will need good interpersonal skills. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to developing a career in teaching and learning, health, or social care.

If you have an interest in enabling homeless people to improve their employability and life skills, good verbal and written communication skills, excellent English, and computer literacy and would like to become a part of the Learning & Activities team, then contact Zisca Burton, Learning & Activities Coordinator, Zisca@999club.org, 0208 694 5797.
