Search launched for role mod­els

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

LE­ICES­TER­SHIRE County Coun­cil’s Youth Of­fend­ing Ser­vice (YOS) is search­ing for ‘role mod­els’ for young men as well as par­ent­ing vol­un­teers and ap­pro­pri­ate adult vol­un­teers.

Ex­ist­ing vol­un­teers have sug­gested a com­bi­na­tion of want­ing to con­tinue to make a dif­fer­ence to young peo­ples’ lives and ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with young peo­ple helped them re­ally pros­per in vol­un­teer roles.

There is a va­ri­ety of vol­un­teer roles avail­able within the YOS in­clud­ing ap­pro­pri­ate adults, men­tors and par­ent­ing. Although train­ing was quite in­tense, it can help to round out vol­un­teers’ skills which would help them carry out their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

There are a num­ber of ways to ap­ply, in­clud­ing call­ing 0116 305 0030, email­ing youthof­fend­ingser­vice@le­ics.gov.uk or vis­it­ing https://www. le­ices­ter­shire.gov.uk/job­sand-vol­un­teer­ing/vol­un­teer­ing/ vol­un­teer- withthe-youth-of­fend­ing-ser­vice and down­load­ing an ap­pli­ca­tion form.

Train­ing be­gins in Septem­ber.
