    aged 14 – 25 who are interested in becoming Peer Educators.
  • Working with the Region Peer Educator Lead Volunteer and other County/Island
    Co-ordinators to develop training opportunities.
  • Working with the Next Steps Team in the county, sharing knowledge and skills to benefit all those in the 14 – 25 age range

 The role will give you opportunities to gain experience at team building, volunteer management and communications

 

Term of Office: Following an initial 6-month trial period, the appointment may be confirmed for a further 18 months i.e. a 2-year period in total.
