Thank you for your interest in becoming an ASPIRE volunteer! Volunteering is a great way to get familiar with our programme if you enjoy working with kids, and you want to change lives.

It's a great way to gain experience in a field that interests you and to network with new people.

Volunteering with ASPIRE is fulfilling, flexible, and most importantly fun! Volunteers play a critical role by bringing special talents and skills that add depth to the ASPIRE programme and offer our children additional role models.

Whatever you're good at, our kids can learn from you. And you can learn from them tooWhether you're able to commit one hour, three hours, or even every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon, your support will help ASPIRE provide our kids with new and exciting opportunities to learn and explore. 

Volunteers are an important and valued part of GSAP.  At GSAP we recognise that volunteers can and do make a positive and worthwhile contribution not only to our organisation and staff, but also the wider Greater Shantallow community.
