If you have taken a look at who we are on the "Say Hello" page, you will see that although we are quite a large team, with the exception of Stuart we are all volunteers. We’re here because we want to support and serve the young people of our community. We’re a mixed bunch of personalities and skills, but what we have in common is a desire to use our time and our gifts to achieve something we believe in.
That’s the great thing about volunteering; it brings together people from all walks of life with a common aim and purpose. However, the team is not complete; there are gifts and skills missing. We particularly need volunteers with the following skills:
PR and marketing
TYPO is currently working towards a re-branding and re-launch in order to raise our profile in and around the local community. We want people to know who we are and what we do, and we especially want to get the attention of young people. We need somebody to help us with that.
We need to establish an annual programme of fund-raising social events taking place around the community. This would have a two-fold purpose – augmenting our funds of course, but also to keep us in the public eye. Our current team members are all in full-time work, willing and able to support such events, but without the time to organise them. We need somebody with time – and energy!
We are looking for mature young people, sympathetic to the Christian faith, to work alongside Stuart in supporting our youth activities. Some of us older ones help out, but we really need volunteers closer in age, who understand the pressures of being a teenager in today’s world.
