Become a volunteer

Can you give up a few hours each week to help to run one of our regular groups for LGBTQ+ young people?

You’ll be there to address any concerns or worries they have around sexuality, gender identity or self-expression.

Reasons to volunteer

  • Make a difference

    You can help LGBTQ+ young people gain the confidence to move forward with their lives.

  • Train and learn

    You'll gain valuable experience of supporting young people. We will train you for the role and will provide a reference for future work, study and volunteering opportunities.

Who we're looking for...

  • People aged 18+ who can commit to a three hour shift each month (minimum).

  • Individuals who recognise and empathise with the challenges that some young LGBTQ+ people face.

  • Individuals who can talk with, motivate and engage young people.

  • People willing to undergo some training (provided by Porchlight – the charity that The BeYou Project is part of).

  • Two references will be required and a DBS check will be undertaken.

  • When you have completed the application form, please email it to beyou@porchlight.org.uk.

Fundraise for BeYou

The possibilities are endless when it comes to raising money for a great cause.

You may be celebrating a birthday or personal milestone, taking on a sporting challenge, organising a cake sale for colleagues, or even fundraising in memory of someone special. However you support, you'll be making a real difference to young LGBTQ+ people in Kent.
