VOLUNTEERING & WORK EXPERIENCE
Come get involved in our programmes and develop your own skills!
VOLUNTEER WITH US
At the Falkirk Foundation we offer opportunities to volunteer across our wide range of programmes. We are so proud of the many volunteers that support the delivery of all our programmes, after all we do have 100 volunteers! The opportunities are primarily all based in our community coaching programmes, however there may also be practical or admin based opportunities also.
We ask that any individual interested in such an opportunity has a willingness to learn and develop themselves, and that they also have an openness to work with children. We appreciate that volunteers come to us without perhaps any experience or previous knowledge of this line of work, which is why we work closely with them to build their confidence within the role, and enhance their skillset to become knowledgeable and qualified to support the delivery of our programmes.
You can contact either Dave Mackay or Stephanie Dawson, they both run the Community Football Programmes at the Falkirk Foundation. After an initial call or email, you will be invited in for an informal discussion on where your volunteering journey will be best place to begin with us. We work around your availability to arrange a placement that suits you, so that we work together to implement a commitment that works for both parties.
We also offer the 1 week school work experience opportunity. We have worked closely with Falkirk Council Secondary Schools for many years now to offer this invaluable experience for young people. It offers them the opportunity to come and work within our environment and get involved in the day to day tasks that exist in the running of the Foundation.
