The Power of an Hour
It’s all about conversation and giving youth a chance. Your hour helps them to build confidence to start their own networks. Once you are registered on our app we will send you a LVN session plan to help you prepare.
What happens after I sign up?
First we will need to check your references. Once the references are checked you will be given access to log back into the app. Youth workers will make direct contact with you via the app and via email. The LVN system is based on match making. You might not be selected straight away. Please be patient!
One hour might not seem much
but collectively it makes a big difference. Ten hours from ten different adults can change a life path. LVN helps vulnerable young people to build up prospective and their understanding of longevity. Did you know that all young people find it hard to consider the long term? Get in touch to see a copy of the LVN psychology report.
Giving more than an hour
On occasion adults giving an hour want to offer more. To do this you need to register as official volunteers with the centre.
What have I got to offer?
The young people you meet will be more intimidated by you that you could ever be about them. They are just finding out about the world. You have knowledge to share. We want every adult to get involved from those who have only been in work a year to those who have been retired for twenty years! People from all backgrounds are getting involved you have no excuse!
ITS FEELS GOOD TO GIVE TIME
Signing up is easy! Write your profile on the app and a youth workers will select you based on an interest match. Volunteers are matched via interests and location. Young people have varied interests so from train spotting, office admin to civil engineering get involved to match. Once you are booked we will send you session plans & tips.
Ok – So, like us you are a regular good person, you just want to help! Occasionally an ill intended person might want to use LVN to harm young people! So just to be sure, we ask you to provide a reference to clarify who you say you are and to provide a picture, so we know who to look out for. You will never be left alone with a young person. You can give 1 hour in 6 different youth centers. If you want to offer more you will need to provide a DBS certificate.
