VOLUNTEERS

Ever thought about volunteering? We need you!

Our Volunteers

Our team of volunteers enable young people with disabilities to take part in music, art, dance and drama. The team creates and informal peer group, which disabled young people would not usually have access too. Volunteers are offered support and training. All are reference and CRB checked. There are no financial rewards, however expect to feel a great sense of achievement and pride!

Is this right for you?

Are you patient, caring and understanding?
Can you work both on your own initiative and part of a team?
Are you full of energy?
Experience of working with children or people who are disabled is preferred but not essential.
An interest in performing arts would be a bonus!

We are particularly interested in volunteers who have experience of working with people who are sight and hearing impaired.

MADD Club job description

MADD club is a music, art, dance and drama club for disabled young people aged 5-18 years.  Siblings within the age range are also included.

Drama group meets at the Princes Hall on a Tuesday evening, 5.30 – 6.30 p.m
Dance group meets at the Westend Centre on a Thursday evening, 5.30 – 7.00 p.m
Music sessions at the Rock and Pop Foundation, Aldershot on a Wednesday evening, from 5:30pm

Each group has a qualified and experienced tutor leading the activity, supported by a small team of volunteers. The groups are small ranging from 5 – 15 members.  Membership of The Madd Club is open to all young people with disabilities. We work with parents/carers to ensure it is the right environment for each young person, often spending time building confidence and self-esteem. Parents/carers complete a membership form when the young people join MADD club. This gives details of disabilities and support needs. In this way PAG can appropriately match volunteers with young people.
