We are looking for young volunteers to join our Youth Steering Group!
It is really important to the Matrix team that we hear the voices of young people in all we do and that their opinions help to shape what we do and how we do it. The Youth Steering Group is one way of young people doing that and we are looking for those who want to be part of a team that INFLUENCES, INVESTIGATES and INNOVATES for the benefit of young people across Guildford Borough.
Can you speak in front of a group (or want to learn to get better at it)? Do you have ideas about what needs improving in your community? Do you have friends that are really struggling with life and you want to be able to help them more? Come and give the Youth Steering Group a try!
What will I get out of it?
You will gain business skills and volunteering experience, as well as the chance to give back to a local charity and be a voice for young people across Guildford Borough.
AND once our new Cafe opens, you will benefit from FREE drinks and other treats!
What will it look like?
We meet every other week for 1 hour (currently over Zoom). Each week you get the chance to be involved in discussions, dreaming up ideas and giving your opinion through chat, games and activities.
Sample week content:
Influence: Instagram takeover
Investigate: Discussion – what needs do young people have in the Covid Crisis? And what can be done about them?
Innovate: Name the new Youth Café
Who can join? And how do I join?
Places are limited, but anyone from 15-18 (Year 10+) can join.
To join you just need to complete this sign up form and one of the Matrix Youth Workers will be in touch.
