Volunteer Youth Worker and Bike Support - Life Cycle



Southmead Adventure Playground
Doncaster Road Southmead
BS10 5PP Bristol
United Kingdom
Job Type: 

Do you have a passion for bikes or young people? Could you give 2 hours every week during term time? Then we need your help! Our Bike Generation project, based at the Ranch (Southmead Adventure Playground), has become very popular - engaging an ever growing number children (6yrs-13yrs) in cycling activities. With BMX and Mountain Biking becoming hugely popular, we are seeking a volunteer to assist the youth worker to make sure everyone gets the attention they deserve!

What will I do?  You will offer individual children help fixing their bikes, get them focused on playing fun bike games and keep things running smoothly at the session.


Why should I do it? You will get to meet loads of like-minded and sociable volunteers, gain experience working with young people and possibly have the opportunity to undertake training and qualifications related to bikes. Above all, you will help children get inspired by bikes and live happier, healthier lifestyles.


Who should I be? You should have a passion for cycling and enjoy working with young people. Some experience in both would be useful. You must be patient, calm and enjoy sharing your knowledge with others.


Where will I be? You will be based at the Southmead Adventure Playground, Doncaster Road BS10 5PP


When do you need me? During term time, sessions are every Thursday, 4pm-6pm. During the holidays sessions still run on a Thursday, but between 12noon - 4pm. We need the most support on the term time sessions as during the holidays, specialist will often come in or we will organise cycling trips - if you think you can help with this though, please be in touch.


Anything else I should know… You may need to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check before starting to volunteer with children.
