Foundation :: Volunteering
THE CELTIC FOUNDATION IS LOOKING FOR ADULT VOLUNTEERS to help with coaching and support the Celtic Foundation's many and diverse range of programmes and activities.
We know there are highly suitable adults in the Glasgow area and beyond who could support our programmes and gain a great deal from the experience themselves. We want to hear from them.
We'd expect volunteers to come from all walks of life and join for a variety of reasons – perhaps to give something back to football, to gain experience working with adults and children, or simply to help enhance their own leisure time. However, they must have a willingness to commit time to helping the Celtic Foundation.
Although, while we must emphasise that volunteers are not paid, we would not expect any volunteer to be out of pocket. What those involved can look forward to are an initial in-service programme from the very best Celtic community and Youth Academy coaches held at Celtic Park or Lennoxtown, full official Nike Celtic coaching kit, full coaching equipment, regular in-service training at Barrowfield or Lennoxtown which could lead to more advanced or additional coaching qualifications.
Qualities and Qualifications
No previous experience in playing or coaching is required, although realistically some experience in this area of work would be of great advantage.
PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) membership is a pre-requisite for those applying for regulated work with children.
It would also be helpful if adult volunteers have the following.
SFA Level 1 Certificate (Children's or Youth pathway).
A driving licence.
Availability in weekday early evenings and at weekends.
Reliability, good organisational skills and timekeeping.
Enthusiasm for children's and youth football.
The following programmes and activities are part of the Celtic Foundation: Celtic Community Academy teams for boys, Celtic Girls' Academy teams, after-school clubs, lunchtime activities and events, festivals and projects. In addition there are special projects aimed at addressing social issues, involving youths and adults which make a contribution to health and wellbeing, getting people back into employment and so on.
Now we would like to extend the opportunity to be part of this exciting programme to suitably qualified adults who will have the opportunity to assist the development of some of Scotland's young players under the auspices of Celtic.
