we need you!

At Future Youth Zone we ask members to step out of their comfort zones all the time – but they need your support and guidance to become the best they can be.

We are looking to add to our committed core of volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds to deliver a world-class service to East London’s young people. We need 8 volunteers per session: your support could make all the difference to their future.

Our volunteers have formal training before they start and ongoing development opportunities but you will also be learning by working alongside the best and most knowledgeable Future team day to day. As well as being inspired by Future members!

Make a real difference to young people – volunteer.

Trustee ROLES

We are seeking a new Trustee to guide the Charity forwards in this important area of our work and help us to create a sustainable future for the Charity and young people of Barking and Dagenham. Check out the Role Profile below:

Why volunteer?

Volunteering enriches local young people and our community – and yourself.


Time Bank recently did a survey of some of the UK’s leading businesses and 73%* said they’d employ someone who’s volunteered over someone who hasn’t.


You’ll probably meet people from different cultures and backgrounds that you might not normally. Volunteering with people who are as passionate about improving the opportunities for you people, as you are, is a great way to meet like-minded people.


It’s a great way to get a reference and fill gaps in your work experience. You can also try out different types of work to get a taster – which can really help you if you’re looking for a job or want to change direction.


You’ll learn and do things that you might not normally get the chance to – this can be a real
confidence boost.

27 volunteers support young people.
Be one of them and change lives
