“Volunteering is at the very core of being human. No one has made it through life without someone else’s help.” Heather French Henry
North Edinburgh Arts (NEA) is a multi-faceted arts centre, this allows us to offer a range of voluntary opportunities. There are lots of groups and activities in NEA that can benefit from the support of interested volunteers. Each opportunity is listed on our current volunteering opportunities page. We are always delighted to hear from anyone with an interest in contributing to our work.
Our volunteers come to work with us for many different reasons, some of these include:
. To use their time and resource to give something back to the community.
. In work part time and are looking for something else to do.
. As a student to complement their course and/or learn new skills.
. Out of work and wanting to gain experience to enhance skills.
In addition we host school placements, creative and administration internships, university placements, International and European students through a range of partners including: Project Scotland, Muirhouse Youth Development Group, Community Renewal, University of Edinburgh, Volunteer Edinburgh and others.
Volunteers make a valuable contribution to NEA and the children, families and individuals who use the centre.
We can offer you:
. A warm welcome.
. Experience working in the Arts with a wide variety of opportunities to enhance your personal and professional development.
. A creative and relaxed space where you can feel part of a team and meet new people.
. Training where appropriate and an experience that will enhance your Curriculum Vitae.
