Volunteer for national children and young people's events in 2020

Being on a team at a CYP event gives you the chance to be part of a purposeful Quaker community, to develop your skills, to contribute to Quakers in Britain and to make a difference to the lives of children and young people. Please consider whether 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 2020 (Summary of events 2020 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 2020 PDF). This explains what will be expected of you.

Even if you have volunteered before, please complete in full the 'offer of service' form. This includes stating which events you would like to be on a team for (please then keep the dates of these free until January). The DBS and reference sections of the form are essential for Britain Yearly Meeting's recruitment policy.

Please return your offer of service form by 31 December 2019.

We will send out invitations to join the event volunteer teams in January 2020.

We will be seeking to put together teams that offer a blend of experience and skills. Telephone conversations (hopefully via Skype if this is possible) will take place with new volunteers (or those who haven't volunteered for a while).

We may not take up every offer of service. If you have not heard from us by the end of January 2020 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 online form. We will contact you within 14 days to let you know if we have anyone available to help.
