Training

We want our volunteers to make the most of their time with us which is why we provide a diverse package of training and development opportunities. Some of these are in house and delivered from our skilled team however, other are sourced in externally.

“Volunteering at Unitas is incredible, you are the people making a change, encouraging young people to be ambitious, kind and positive influences in the world. Each week is different and challenging with Unitas constantly working to expand what they are doing and how they are reaching young people. You can take the lead on projects and activities and can really have fun, in the last month I’ve been a face painter, a hair stylist and led galaxy painting in the arts and crafts room!” – Nayna
