Giving your time, skills and enthusiasm can make an amazing difference to Kick London and the young people we work with.
As well as supporting young people, volunteering as part of a team can give you new experiences and the opportunity to gain new skills and qualifications.
We currently have over 70 wonderful volunteers who help run our weekend academies.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, either working with young people directly or in an office based role, then please contact us.
If a volunteering role involves working alongside young people, you will be required to have a DBS (formally CRB) check before you can undertake the role.
This is what some of our Kick London volunteers have to say:
“It is great to build relationships with the young people and really make a positive change in their lives.”
“It has been a positive and great way to be part of our local community.”
“I haven’t got a great amount of football skills, but have felt supported and equipped by Kicks training. It has enabled me to give back, and be a role model for the younger boys.”
“Kick is a great place to come. It is a nice arena for them to enjoy the sport they love and get to learn life skills from the talk we give. It is nice to see kids enjoy what they do, have fun and just be themselves, without having to worry about being told off.”
“It is a privilege to be a part of Kick.I like being a volunteer coach because of the involvement we have with the kids each week. You have them coming in after something has happened to them or they have had a bad week and they are able to express themselves. It is good to see the reward of them applying the skills they have learnt.”
