Volunteers are considered the central structure of the CYF organisation at local level. All CYF branches must be committed to the creation of volunteering leadership teams across four key areas:
and Tech Projects/Employment (“Volunteer Areas”).
For a successful volunteer programme, CYF requires all CYF branches to implement the following:
Train and support volunteers in the Volunteer Areas;
Volunteers must be actively working and communicate with their team on a weekly basis (“Engaged Volunteers”);
At least 5 Engaged Volunteers are required for each Volunteer Area to ensure sustainable distribution of the responsibilities and efficient service delivery;
All volunteers are to be treated with respect, equanimity, and be offered learning and growth opportunities; and
Volunteers who form part of the leadership teams are expected to go through a formal volunteer selection process.
