Volunteering at The Junction







We have a brilliant team of volunteers! A diverse bunch of individuals with a common desire to positively contribute to the support & services The Junction offers. We strive to ensure high quality volunteer experiences, which encourage both personal and professional development.

There are various ways people can volunteer within The Junction:

Junction Youth Advisors – for 12 – 21’s. The Junction Youth Advisors (JYA) is a group of local young people who support The Junction to provide free accessible health and wellbeing services to their peers in Leith and North East Edinburgh

Project Volunteers – over 21’s. Project Volunteers are involved in The Junction in a variety of ways, they support a range of health & wellbeing initiatives that offer young people the opportunity to explore health related issues.

Volunteer Counsellors – over 21’s. Trained and experienced Volunteer Counsellors do a great job of supporting our clients. Through their commitment to The Junction we are able to offer more sessions, over more time slots, over more days

Board of Trustees – over 21’s. The Junction could not do the vital work they do without the support of the Board of Trustees who have overall responsibility for the organisation.

Specialist Volunteers – In the past we have had two qualified Reiki Practitioners volunteering their skills, and a Volunteer Yoga Tutor. Specialist Volunteers bring opportunities for young people (and staff) to explore new activities.

Fundraising Volunteers – We are always grateful for those individuals who choose to support our work by fundraising for The Junction, whether it’s through running a marathon or holding money raising events. We have been lucky to have the support of a range of Volunteer Fundraisers, like:

Kyle Morrison, students from Edinburgh CollegeThe Junctioneers and The Junction EH11’ers.
