From the age of 14, a young person could look to obtain their FA refereeing qualification and from the age of 16 they would be eligible to apply for an FA Level 1 in Coaching.
Volunteers could begin their journey at any age as long as they are supported and mentored within a good club environment.
There are a number of roles a young person could take on within a club. Find out what interests the young person and then develop a role which suits their interests. For example, if a young person is computer literate and social media savvy, could they help co-ordinate a club website and Facebook/Twitter accounts under supervision.
A young person could look to volunteer their time within their school, school sports partnership or local club. All volunteering opportunities should have a responsible adult to oversee the opportunity and ensure the young person is supervised and not put at risk in any situation.
