We are always extremely grateful for additional hands to help, wherever your skills lie and however much time you have to spare.

As well as helping us out, volunteering for the Geraldine Connor Foundation helps you to:

  • contribute to the community
  • gain experience
  • meet new people
  • and most importantly have fun!

There is a huge range of things you could do if you volunteer with us. Perhaps you’d enjoy helping at our participatory workshops or spending time in our office organising our archive. We also welcome young people who would like to complete work experience placements with us.

Volunteer for Global Mash Up 2019!

We are currently looking for volunteers for Global Mash Up 2019! Volunteers will assist GCF staff and artists with delivering the week of activity by supporting pastoral care of the young people and acting as role models to encourage and inspire young people. In particular, we are interested in hearing from people who would like to gain experience of working with young people and in a creative workshop setting.

Volunteers will need to be able to attend every day of Global Mash Up (Monday 28th October - Friday 1st November, 9am-3pm daily) and a compulsory briefing session on Thursday 17th October. 

To apply to volunteer please fill in this form. Deadline for applications: Friday 11th October. 

Please email [email protected] to register your interest. 

We have both learnt many new skills during our placement at the Foundation, including social skills, communication, independence, teamwork and leadership.
