One of the important aims of the roadHoG Bus Youth Project is bridging the gap between communities and young people. Having team members who are called by God to be with, and listen to, young people is a key aim of the project.
We welcome and value appropriate adults who will be able to help on the bus staff. There are three different ways in which you can get involved on the roadHoG bus:
These are people who come on board and work with young people; serving in the cafe, supervising the games consoles, playing board games, leading sports activities outside, helping with a craft activity or special projects or simply listening. Their primary aim is to ensure that roadHoG is a safe place for young people. The bus staff work under the supervision of the Team Leader.
These are people who, after safety checks, will drive the bus to and from the community. Bus drivers will be required to have a clean driving licence (Cat B before 1997), at least 25 years old and with at least 15 hours bus driving experience.
Bus Support Team
These are people who are able to help with the maintenance of the bus: cleaning the bus, checking supplies, mechanical maintenance, levels checking and ensuring a high quality of health and safety on a weekly basis. Mechanical experience would be helpful, but not essential.
Each person, working directly with young people, will be required to meet all the criteria in LYM safeguarding policy; including an enhanced DBS check, completed LYM Volunteers Form (which includes two character references) and will be required to complete an evening of safety and safeguarding training. Refresher training is essential every three years.
If you would like to be considered for helping on the roadHoG Bus, please email the Local Management Group -using the below link – include your name and church (if appropriate) and the area of staffing you would like to support us with.
