North Edinburgh Arts Saturday Arts & Dance programme is extremely popular with the local community and is one of the centre's busiest days.

They run both Arts and Dance sessions for 5 – 12 year olds. The sessions are split into two age ranges, 5-7 years and 8-12 years and the groups alternate between sessions from 10.30am – 11.20am and 11.30am – 12.30pm, with a healthy snack between sessions.

Volunteers are expected to commit to one project with both ages, for example you would volunteer with either art or dance. This role would suit someone with an interest in working with children and young people and/or experience in art or dance.

They ask volunteers to undertake the following tasks:

  • Support the lead artist in the overall delivery of the session.
  • Interact, engage and create with the young people.
  • If tasked with taking the register, mark off children’s names.
  • Help the café staff to oversee snack and help to tidy it away afterwards.
  • Help with the smooth set up, delivery and clear up of the session.
  • Be actively involved with the session briefing and evaluation.
