Chance to help youth

Central Leader - - News -

Youth­line is look­ing for more peo­ple to join their next round of vol­un­teer train­ing next month.

The train­ing is di­vided into sev­eral parts and aims to im­prove the vol­un­teers’ com­mu­ni­ca­tion and lis­ten­ing skills.

Men­tor Ju­lian Bar­nett, who has been with Youth­line for the past two years, says he loves work­ing with the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“It’s re­ally quite amaz­ing to be with peo­ple who have the same pas­sion and same de­sire to learn,” he says.

New re­cruits first learn more about them­selves and how they work in groups.

Fur­ther train­ing about coun­selling and youth work skills is also pro­vided.

Youth­line vol­un­teers de­velop a wide variety of skills in­clud­ing or­gan­is­ing sem­i­nars, visit­ing schools and run­ning pro­grammes with young peo­ple.

Pro­gramme co­or­di­na­tor Cathy Ai­avao says be­ing part of Youth­line is a great way to meet peo­ple, learn more about your­self, im­prove your com­mu­ni­ca­tion and give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms and fur­ther in­for­ma­tion can be found at www. youth­line.co.nz.
