Do you have a son or daughter, or someone you know aged 14-24 who would love the opportunity to volunteer? Newcastle Junior Athletic Club (NJAC) are delighted to announce that we will be offering the Millennium Volunteers Programme within our Club.
Millennium Volunteers is an initiative to promote and recognise volunteering among young people. The programme will:
- Enable you to develop your learning and skills
- Provide recognition for you
- Give you the opportunity to make new friends, gain confidence and make a difference.
Each volunteer will be issued with their own Record Book to help them record their own personal objectives, time spent volunteering and assessing what they have learnt.
Opportunities for volunteering are on Monday evenings at Shimna College during training from 7-8pm and also at McGrady Financial Services Cross Country Series.
The Millennium Volunteer Programme can run alongside other volunteering programmes such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Millennium Volunteers receive awards when they complete 50, 100 and 200 hours.
The Millennium Volunteer Programme coordinator for NJAC is Mrs Catherine McIntosh. If you are interested or require further details please contact Catherine at 07482186654 by Friday 10th March 2017.
