Volunteering at Tokko

Are you able to donate a few hours of your time to support the running of our building or a youth project? (DBS required).

Does your employer allow you volunteering days to help out local good causes in the community such as TOKKO?

We understand time is precious and value our volunteers and the diverse talents that they bring to TOKKO. We will give you training and have opportunities available during the day and evenings.

Volunteering is simple and fun!

TOKKO could not undertake the valuable work including disadvantaged vulnerable young people without the gift of time from our fantastic volunteers. Millions of people all over the country volunteer so why not roll up your sleeves, take the plunge and join TOKKO and its young people on their next journey.

As well as making a difference in your community, volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, build your CV, share your knowledge and skills, gain confidence and experience… but most important of all, to have fun!
