In association with Dundee Pride and LGBT Youth Scotland, we’re offering young people aged 13-25 the chance to do something great for their community in 2018 – join the Purple Dragons!
Funded by Foundation Scotland, our volunteering program will recruit around 40 young people and offer them support and training to help them take ownership of organising events during Dundee Pride, as well as other opportunities around the city. The program is being rolled-out from February in the Scottish Year of Young People.
LGBT young people can often be isolated in the community and perceive a lack of services which address their direct needs. Our hope is that the program will provide them with new skills, improved awareness of local services and opportunities to get involved with organisations in the city.
Volunteering registration is now open and applicants can register their details online at the link below, or drop-in to a meeting on 9th February from 4.30pm at Butterfly Cafe on Commercial Street to speak to some of the organisations involved.
