We are now accepting applications for September 2022

The role of every Yes Futures Coach is to empower young people to believe in themselves

If you're a repeat Coach and want to be informed when we open applications for Repeat Volunteers, please email Ollie and let him know.

Coaches will support students aged 9-16, coaching them either individually or in small groups to develop confidence, resilience, communication and self-awareness, through a structured personal development framework.

We have two roles; the One-to-One Coach is primarily an online role with opportunities to support in-person trips, and the Impact Coach is a face-to-face role for volunteers wanting to support students in-person.

Don't worry if you are unsure, you can select both and we can discuss them further at the interview stage. 

Yes Futures runs two programmes per year, September - February and March - July. Please register your interest below to start your journey to becoming a Yes Futures Coach.

I would highly recommend it!"
