Make a difference and develop skills with our Men's Group

by Brushstrokes

Brushstrokes Men’s Group has been running since April 2022 and hosts weekly sessions to encourage male service users to spend valuable time together. We offer a range of activities to appeal to our service users, and these have included gardening projects, nature walks in the local area including on the canal, arts and craft sessions, and football sessions. Many of these activities are run in partnership with organisations such as the Canal & River Trust and community arts organisations. The men’s group is a weekly session, however, we are not restricted by a particular day of the week. There are many ways how a male volunteer can contribute to this group. This can include: being a friendly face during our sessions, running a particular session about a topic that you have a passion for, setting up the room for the session, promotion of the men’s group.

Lend a hand at our popular Bike Project

We’re looking for volunteers to support this increasingly popular project. We are particularly looking for volunteers to help out at our regular bicycle repair sessions, and help organise led rides. Knowledge about bicycles or bike repair isn’t essential – we equally value people’s willingness to get involved, their love of cycling and their tea making abilities.

Could you help empower girls in your community?

by YMCA Black Country Group

The Y’s Girls mentoring programme matches volunteer mentors with young girls aged 9-14 years old to support them to be their best. You will be assigned to a local Project Coordinator who will tell you more about Y’s Girls mentoring, as well as discuss your interests and availability. You will then be matched with a young person as your mentee. As a mentor, you will be offered a full package of ongoing training and support for your personal and professional development, to help you and the young person get the most out of the mentoring process. Over a 12 month period, you will regularly meet with your young person and work together to identify achievable goals to focus on. These goals should empower the young person, building their resilience and enabling them to lead fulfilling lives. As a mentor, you can also help the young person to access activities and services, and try new things.
