FLIPP

The FLIPP Project is a new and exciting project which aims to support young people aged 16-25, throughout Cambridgeshire, to get involved with designing and delivering peer education projects on issues that they identify as relevant. We will be working with a diverse range of young people, such as BME young people, young people with disabilities, LGB young people, young offenders, young carers. The project will support the self-development and empowerment of the young people involved and will promote positive community participation.

We are looking for motivated students- undergraduates and graduates, aged 16-25, to take part in the project, either with project development and promotion, or training and mentoring groups of young people. There are a range of opportunities, from long-term part-time roles, to one-off sessions. Volunteers will receive thorough training, and ongoing support, and will have access to accreditation opportunities. All volunteer-related expenses will be covered.

For more information, please contact Ellen Roberts on Ellen at centre33.org.uk [Ellen@centre33.org.uk], 01223 566656 / 07504 130887
