Volunteer Coach

What You'll Do: 

During a typical KEEN London session, you’ll provide one-to-one support to an athlete, helping them to access all the activities on offer, achieve their personal development goals, and of course have tons of fun! You can expect to get involved with a wide range of playground games, ball games, nature walks, and creative activities. From time to time we also run trips for our athletes, and previous trips have included trampoline parks, high ropes courses, pedalo boating and slime-making classes!

Why You'll Love It: 

Our Volunteer Coaches are the backbone of a KEEN London session!

 

Help our athletes access the activities and games at our sessions. You’ll support our athletes to engage with the session, and have fun while they’re doing it.

 

Support athletes to achieve their goals. You’ll help our Service Coordinators develop goals for our athletes, track their progress, and give them lots of encouragement along the way.

 

Work as a team to develop creative ways of engaging with the athletes. You’ll work together to come up with new games, develop resources, and plan activities.

 

Get moving. We want our athletes to enjoy being active, making friends, and trying new things - and we want you to join in with them!

 

Have fun! Our athletes love working with energetic and enthusiastic people, and we’ll ensure that all your hard work will be rewarded with a great time.

What We're Looking For: 

We don’t expect any prior experience for this role - just lots of energy, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn!

 

A commitment to attending 2 sessions per month, for at least 6 months. This is to ensure a level of consistency for our athletes and so that you can gain the experience needed to support our athletes effectively.

 

Completion of our application process. After submitting your application, we’ll invite you to attend a training session and complete a DBS check.
