Volunteering

We are so grateful to each of our amazing volunteers. There are currently around 150 people supporting our work in schools in Maidstone, Medway and Swale. Thanks to their dedication and enthusiasm we reach over 50,000 children and young people every year; with your help, we can reach even more!

There are many ways you can get involved with our work and whether you can spare an hour a week or an hour a fortnight, we’d love to have you on our team.

“The amazing thing about mentoring is that, as you help a young person think about things from a different perspective, you also get a unique opportunity to see the world through their eyes.”

Why Us?

You have the opportunity to change a young person’s life! The pupils that we work with are the most important people to us and we place value on each of them. We are dedicated to being positive role models and bringing messages of hope, love and acceptance to them as we seek to boost their self-confidence, resilience and sense of self-worth.

Most of our volunteers are placed at a school within their local parish so you can be assured that your time commitment will be making a valuable difference to your immediate community.

We provide training, support and resources to all our volunteers with opportunities throughout the year to come together for social events.

Whether it’s something to add to your university application, you’re considering a job change or you’re just looking to get more involved with your local community, volunteering with us is a great way to gain new skills and experience.

Get Involved

There are lots of ways to be a part of our work and some of these are outlined below. From time to time, we also need support at our events or for other one off school projects. However you want to get involved, we would love to hear from you! Please complete the enquiry form below and one of our team will be in contact within 2 weeks to talk you through the process in more detail.

Together, we can inspire the next generation to explore Christianity.

Kingsquad leaders

 

Our programme of after school and lunch time clubs are a fun and informal opportunity to help Primary school children explore the Christian faith and grow in their spiritual understanding. Each session usually involves craft activities, stories and games and, as with everything we do, the messages and themes are considered in an engaging ad relevant way.

Mentors

Our Mentors work 1-2-1 with secondary school students using their own experiences and knowledge to help the young person work through the challenges they might be facing. Together, they recognise and celebrate achievements developing a sense of positivity.

Residential Camp Leaders 

 

In the summer, we run a two-week residential camp for around 75 children in school years 4 to 7. Each day is filled with fun and games and provides an opportunity to make new friends and learn about the Christian faith. As you can imagine, we need lots of volunteers to ensure camp runs smoothly including cooks, worship leaders, first aiders, dorm leaders… whatever your skills, we have a role for you!
