Our Young Ambassadors Project offers teenagers, aged 16 to 18, work experience with a difference. Not only will it give you the edge when applying for university or as you take your first step on to your career path; but it will also give you the feel-good factor as it involves giving back to the community as a volunteer for one of Essex’s largest charities.
Applications for Young Ambassadors Project 2020 are now closed, we will be contacting applicants in January to arrange an interview to take place in February half term.
If you have any queries please email the Volunteer Services Team or call 01702 426237.

Evolve – Learn new skills that will help with future university and job opportunities; from learning how to write a fantastic application letter and interviewing skills to building confidence and gaining knowledge about an area of industry.
Many of the young people who apply are aiming for a career in healthcare; however, we have diverse volunteering opportunities within other areas of the charity. We have roles available in Care, Marketing, Administration, Social Media, Promotion and Outreach, eBay Sales, Community Fundraising and Retail.
