Callout: Volunteer Youth Leaders


Fancy making a difference?

Want to gain new skills?

Or use the ones you already got?

Need something for your CV?

Got an idea but no way to channel it?

Then why not become a volunteer!

MYDP Birmingham is looking for young people aged between 16-25 from Muslim backgrounds with a minimum of 2 hours to spare for volunteering activities in the city.

Attached is a brief description of what we are looking for. If you think you have what it takes to become a Volunteer Youth Leader or even if you are curious about volunteering – then get in touch today!

We are hoping to have an informal chat with anyone interested on Monday 29th December from 2-4pm. There will be Youth Workers and experienced Volunteers available to talk to you about your ideas and more importantly to meet you.

Please email for further information.

Kind regards,

Taslim Rashid
Volunteer Link Worker – MYDP BRUM


Britain has a rich tradition of volunteering. It is not odd to find people from all walks of life and ages giving up their time to assist others, campaigning for a cause, improving their community or offering support to someone with a problem. In a given year up to 23 million people will volunteer and research shows that 80% of people would volunteer if asked.

Birmingham is no exception in this regards. Earlier this year a campaign was launched to encourage teenagers to discover the benefits which lie in volunteering. With this in mind the Muslim Youth Development Partnership (MYDP) aims to train local Volunteer Youth Leaders (VYL) who will work with local volunteers to organise and deliver youth activities. The VYLs will use a youth-lead approach and be supported throughout by a Link Worker.

MYDP consists of Catch-22, the Karimia Institute and Muslim Hands, funded by v, the national youth volunteering charity. The MYDP is committed to developing and supporting the provision of voluntary youth work and is working in five cities in England.
