Get involved with Berkshire Youth charity

We rely on the incredible generosity of local people, companies and groups. We need your help to raise awareness of Berkshire Youth and to raise funds to pay for our crucial work, supporting, empowering and inspiring young people.

“Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless!”

Do you have an interest in youth work and community work? Would you like to help us in our work with Berkshire’s young people?

Volunteers make a real difference to our work and the young people we reach. Whatever time you can commit (big or small) or role which appeals to you we’re sure we can find something you will enjoy.

  • If you’re passionate about working with young people, then our youth activities worker role would be ideal
  • If you’re green fingered, we’d love some help maintaining our grounds!
  • If you love being with people and supporting the community, maybe our Meet and Greet post is right for you, or you could support us with our community projects
  • Or if admin is your thing, how about helping our admin team with weekly tasks?

Volunteering is a brilliant way to give back to your local community and is incredibly rewarding. We will also help you to develop new skills, increase your confidence and be part of our incredible team.
