First Give helps young people give their time and talent to improve their community through a fully-resourced and interactive programme. We are operating in over 30 schools in South Wales this academic year.
The programme runs across an entire year group. Students identify social issues within their local community and the charities working to address them. Then, each class will choose one charity to support throughout the programme. Students plan how they will support the charity directly through social action, and teams develop inspiring presentations about the charity and how they have helped. The winning class wins a grant of £1,000 for their chosen charity.
First Give is looking for an inspirational addition to our team to deliver our First Give Assemblies, Presentation Skills Workshops and to host the First Give School Finals.
For further information about the programme, please visit www.firstgive.co.uk.
These position will be on a part-time term-time contract basis (for March – End of July 2018 with the possibility of renewal in the next academic year). They are best suited for a self-employed person.
We will provide you with all the materials and contents that you need to deliver these sessions. We will provide extensive training too, and the chance to observe our Programme Manager delivering these sessions.
