Girvan Youth Trust is committed to supporting the development of young people through volunteering and volunteer placements. To this end, GYT have developed the 'Life's a Journey' programme which will further enhance the support provided to local people who want to volunteer in their community.
As well as identifying volunteering opportunities and providing guidance for volunteers, the 'Life's a Journey' team will also offer support to individual young people who want to develop or learn new 'essential life skills' which will enable them to be more independent in their everyday lives. These could include practical skills such as cooking, money management, personal skills and interpersonal skills. The team will be further supported by local volunteer mentors who will work with young people on a one to one basis and will tailor sessions to best suit the individual.
