Young volunteers

In the past 12 months over 30 young volunteers have participated in a structured training course which has spanned a number of local towns. The Bridgnorth Youth & Schools Project has drawn youngsters from the Tuesday and Friday clubs at The Bridge in Bridgnorth, St James’ Hall Youth Club, the Friday Event in Highley, the Old Chapel Youth Club in Alveley, and clubs run by the Say Yes Project in Shifnal and Albrighton.

The volunteers, who were between the ages of 10 and 19, gave a total of 1,164 hours with each learning practical skills relating to their own environment. Some of the youngest gave their time to raise money whilst the older participants learnt how to run activities and events, with one joining the Shropshire Youth Association and achieving a Level 2 qualification in Youth Work. At the awards night, leaders and participants welcomed parents, adult volunteers, trustees, local county councillor Christian Lea and Mayor and Mayoress Ron and Carol Whittle, who presented awards.
The next programme will commence in October.
