YU Volunteer Leaders and Diana Awards

A unique feature of YU is our Volunteer Leaders, who assist the staff and young students at YU

YU Leaders help in several ways:

  • as a Study Buddy - working individually with a child
  • as a Classroom Assistant - taking an active part in the classroom, assisting teachers with the running of courses
  • as a General Helper - assisting the YU Managers with day to day running of YU
  Without the support of volunteer leaders YU could not run its courses. Regular YU Leaders have earned the prestigious national DIANA AWARD, which recognises young people who volunteer and give up their time to support others
