Volunteers are integral to the Youth Genesis approach as they provide value, local knowledge, specialist skills and sustainability. Youth Genesis has worked hard to build a large team of volunteers who offer an abundance of experience and are passionate about supporting young people.

Youth Genesis currently works with over 50 volunteers across Torbay, East Devon, Great Torrington and the South Hams who offer their valuable time and skills on a weekly basis.

In order to make sure that the volunteers are equipped with the tools to support some of the most disadvantaged young people in our communities, Youth Genesis invests in a training package designed to provide the most current and up-to-date content needed to have a significant impact in some of our most deprived and rurally isolated communities.

As well as the basic training requirements i.e. First Aid and Food Hygiene, Youth Genesis offers diverse and well presented training around various subjects such as:

  • Youth Work Practice & Principles
  • Equality & Diversity
  • Community Engagement
  • Working with Challenging Behaviour
  • Working with Teenage Issues
  • Drug & Alcohol Awareness
  • Safeguarding & Good Practice
