ages 12+

Celebrating and recognising the volunteering achievements of young people in Scotland

What is it?

3Theatre  celebrate, recognise and reward the commitment, contribution and achievements of our young volunteers, aged between 12 and 25.

Young people gain nationally recognised certificates, signed by Scottish Government Ministers, for the different amounts of volunteering they do.

We aim to help young volunteers to reflect on, capture and communicate their learning and development gained through their time with us.


Who is it for?

Anyone who would like to make friends, feel valued, and lend their time and talents for the benefit of the community….and become part of the best team EVER!

As part of each ‘Smile!’  and Skills projects we encourage young people aged 12+  who are willing to give things a go and have a genuine interest in creativity and/or performing arts and would like to help other young people fulfill their potential.

Select ‘ I would like to be a young volunteer’ on our registration page.

As we work with children we may require a short character reference from a school teacher or family friend.

Some past ‘ Smile’ participants or 3T students can move onto this type of role- you should still register and select the volunteer option.

This is a popular role and we aim to give experience to all who are willing to work hard, have fun and have a genuine interest in the creative arts.

PLEASE NOTE: Health and safety of all students and staff is very important to 3Theatre .ALL participants need to fill out the Health and safety forms to be signed by a parent or guardian (if under 18).

We will welcome anyone who would like to give it a go and learn. You can do it ,get in touch.
