Sign up to become a volunteer for Groundwork GY: Grimsby Youth and take part in 6 days of events in exchange for personal development, transferable skills and an addition to your CV that stands out.

My name is Mica and I am Grimsby’s local ambassador for Groundwork UK’s Youth Campaign. As the local ambassador, I will be hosting 6 days of events within the local community that follow a National Campaign brief. These events aim to bring together young people in the local community and provide an opportunity to develop skills, increase awareness and provide advice on issues young people face in society. The skills the events aim to develop will be largely social and employability skills. Issues surrounding health and well-being, identity and the environment will also be discussed and educated on throughout the week.

My events will be taking place in Cleethorpes and Grimsby from the 23rd-28th July.
On the 23rd the day theme is Mindful Monday which entails of a picnic at Sidney Park with a presentation and discussion on mental health and wellbeing.
On the 24th the day theme is Trashy Tuesday with a beach clean alongside Ebb & Flo.
On the 25th the day theme is Walk and Talk Wednesday with stalls and talks on different career paths and methods of gaining experience.
On the 26th the day theme is Throwback Thursday which will entail the redevelopment of 3 planters along the North Promenade.
On the 27th, the day theme is Festival Friday with a community day festival at Moon on the Water with local artists such as Amy Naylor and Matthew Lloyd.
On the 28th, the day theme is Sporty Saturday and this event will be a competitive litter picking race.

Volunteers will be provided with a t-shirt, a hi vis, local travel arrangements and refreshments.
