The Foróige Galway City Youth Café in the Fairgreen is seeking volunteers who will take on leadership roles and work with young people.
Volunteers will get to know the various young people who go to the café; encouraging them to be involved in the youth committee; agreeing rules covering behaviour in the café; involving members in choosing, organising, and implementing café activities; being a supportive presence; attending meetings with the other leaders; organising parental permission and contact with parents; meeting leaders of similar cafés; following Foróige policies and procedures for good practice, child protection, and safety.
Volunteer leaders need to have good common sense; a positive attitude to young people; willingness to share authority and responsibility with young people. You don't have to know how to manage a commercial café!
All Foróige leaders are fully Garda vetted, reference checked, and trained. Those interested should contact Noel Cronin ([email protected] or 086 - 0436784 ) or Tara Gannon (tara.gannon @foroige.ie or 086 - 9672919 ).
