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.
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:
