Volunteers do not need any specialist skills or experience, but will need lots of enthusiasm and energy, as well as good communication and team-working abilities.
We offer full training and support, and a range of additional education sessions, including Autism awareness, behaviour management and session leading.
You will need to complete an online application via our website and a reference is required – this can be a current/previous employer, teacher or community leader but it must not be a member of your family. If your application is successful and once we have received a response from your referee, we will invite you to attend an induction session. These take place on weekday evenings at our office in Hackney and give you an introduction to KEEN London, our sessions and all of the information you need to know to be an effective coach.
After having attended your induction you will shadow one of our experienced volunteers at a session before being introduced to supporting athletes one-to-one.
We require all volunteers to complete an enhanced DBS certificate application. We will provide all of the necessary instructions for this. We will also ask you to commit our Volunteer Agreement, which you can find below.
Reasonable travel expenses within London (public transport) will be reimbursed at request.
Volunteers are expected to attend at least 2 sessions per month for at least 6 months.
