Learn through volunteering
Learn through play whilst supporting the local community. Oasisplay offers volunteering opportunities to disabled and non-disabled young people, as well as to corporate partners. Our sites and projects are so diversse that you could spend one session planting seeds in The Nature Garden greenhouse, another running an activity at a youth club, and the next restoring one of our accessible playground structures.
We believe children and young people should be given the opportunity to learn and gain new skills in a supportive environment. Many young people grow up through Oasisplay, and volunteering can be an important step in taking on more responsibilities and achieving new goals.
Volunteering encourages young people to gain confidence, it enhances their learning, and it offers relevant work experience. We encourage young people to complete activities that suit their interests and support them to take on new challenges.
Volunteering activities for young people can include:
• Kart track marshalling and kart maintenance
• Gardening and site maintenance
• Leading young peoples’ activities and supporting play sessions
• Office support such as administration and data collection
• Co-production in development plans
Oasisplay also greatly benefits from groups of corporate volunteers. These sessions can be a fantastic chance to get the team out of the office, promote team building and support a community
project whilst gaining new skills and experience.
