Societies | Volunteering: Beyond The Body

We are currently looking for volunteers to be involved with the project in 2019/20, book in for an informal chat to speak to the volunteering team and find out how you can be involved.

Body Confidence Mentor Volunteer

Are you conscious of the damaging and consistent negative attitudes to body image? Are you tired of the mixed messages around what we’re supposed to look like? Are you fed up of social media normalising unrealistic body types? If you would like to have a role in changing these negatives into positives and help build up body confidence and self-esteem within teenagers, then look no further.

This exciting opportunity will see you, as part of a team of volunteers; go into schools to deliver workshops to teenagers exploring topics around body confidence and self-esteem. These workshops will be designed by the team, giving you a chance to get creative to promote positive attitudes towards body image. You will also explore self-care methods and deliver these techniques to young people which they can use after the sessions. By doing this, you will have a long-lasting impact on the wellbeing of young people. Sessions will give you a chance to chat with teenagers in small groups, building up discussions and debates around the topics.

You will be enthusiastic in encouraging young people to take part in a supportive environment. You will be at the forefront of demonstrating to young people that one size does not fit all, and that there are more important aspects to an individual than looks and body size. You will help to bring out confidence in teenagers and help them find what’s really unique about them, showing them that everyone is remarkable.
