Help families improve their lifestyle while having fun

Leading group activities volunteers needed for Let’s Get Going

Let’s Get Going — sport, fitness and working with children!

LetsGetGoing-Fun4Health

Let’s Get Going (LGG) is a 10-week healthy lifestyle after-school club that aims to help families to be active and eat healthily. Delivered within various schools and community settings throughout Reading, Wokingham, West Berkshire and Slough, this interactive programme contains fun workshops and games to encourage children and families to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle long term.

Volunteers will support the instructor to deliver sessions to children and their families – for example by leading fun games, helping children complete activities and supporting the group. Volunteers should be passionate about sport, exercise and working with children. They should be keen on healthy living and have a desire to work in the health and fitness industry.

Sessions are 1.5 hours after school or on Saturday mornings; volunteers must be aged over 18 with a DBS certificate (due to nature of working with children). This position could lead to training opportunities and paid work if the volunteer has the skills to progress to instructor position.
