New for September 2022, Stripey Stork are offering after school Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteering placements, for young people who are looking for a rewarding experience supporting and working with an award-winning charity.
Stripey Stork is a Registered Charity In England and Wales (1161613), and a proud recipient of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, which was awarded in 2019.
As an inclusive workspace we embrace a diverse range of people where everyone feels valued, and people from all backgrounds and circumstances can work together effectively.
This ethos complements the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme and together we can work in partnership to help you achieve your own individual D of E Award.
What will placements involve?
We can accommodate Bronze, Silver and Gold students who need to complete regular volunteering hours. Tasks will include sorting donations, making up activity packs, hygiene packs and school bags, as well as general cleaning and laundry.
Placements will also involve group fundraising, and contributing to our research to help us develop the service we offer to teenagers needing support in Surrey.
Volunteering will take place at our warehouse in Reigate, with the occasional opportunity to take on extra tasks at events and seasonal activities off-site.
Benefits of Volunteering at Stripey Stork:
- Learn new skills.
- Be part of a valued team.
- Build resilience, communication and drive.
- Improve confidence, competence and self-esteem.
- Enhance your CV.
By Joining Stripey Stork and learning about recycling and repurposing, you will be helping to keep rubbish out of landfill and help the environment. Support our local community and make new connections and friends.
Information for parents and carers:
Sessions will be managed by a dedicated Coordinator with experience of working with children and young people. Members of the Stripey Stork team working with young people are all first aid trained and have Enhanced DBS checks.
