    Volunteer for national children and young people's events in 2019

    Being on a team at one of these events is a chance to be part of a purposeful Quaker community. It's an opportunity to develop your skills and to make a difference to the lives of children and young people. Are you are able to offer your service to one or more of the event teams next year?

    Find out about the events being planned for Quaker children and young people in 2019 (Summary of events 2019 PDF). If you'd like to volunteer at one or more of the events please read the detailed role outline for each event (Role outline booklet 2019 PDF). This explains what will be expected of you.

    Even if you have volunteered before, please complete in full the 'offer of service' form. Say which events you'd like to help with and keep the dates free. The DBS and reference sections are essential for Britain Yearly Meeting's recruitment policy.

    Please return your offer of service form by 30 November 2018. We will put together teams with a blend of experience and skills.

    We will send out invitations to join the event volunteer teams in December 2018. We will arrange telephone or Skype calls with those who haven't volunteered with us before.

    We may not take up every offer of service. If you have not heard from us by the middle of January 2019 please assume that your offer is not being taken up.

    For paper versions of the documents please email cypadmin@quaker.org.uk.

    Do you need help to run young Quakers' events?

    We have a list of Friends, all keen to help local or area meetings run events for young people. All those on the list have given us references and had a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (offsite link).

    If you'd like help running your event, please fill in this form. We will contact you within 14 days to let you know if we have anyone available to help.
