VOLUNTEER WORKSHOP ASSISTANTS
To help us in our mission of providing free drama workshops for young people in North West London. This is an incredible hands-on experience if you are aiming to develop a career in either community work or drama.
At the moment we need Volunteer Workshop Assistants for our next block Far Far Away programme running on Tuesdays from 8th January 2019 until the 2nd April 2019. The workshops happen every Tuesday (except half term) from 4.45 pm to 6.15 pm at Kensal House (W10 5BQ). You will need to be in from 4.00 pm until 6.30 pm, to set up before the workshop as well as break down and do feedback afterwards with the workshop assistant(s) and the Project Leader.
You would be working with maximum 20 local young people aged 8-13 year olds each session. In the workshop there will be a facilitator, a member of SPID staff and 2-3 workshop assistants. You will be paid £5 for travel expenses. The plan for this block is that the first 6 sessions will be working on singing and the other 6 sessions would be doing spoken word.
Ideally we would love to find someone to volunteer for the first six workshops and another one for the other six. In any case, let us know your availability and we will figure out how to organise it.
