Make a difference… your way
Volunteering at Legacy Youth Zone is a way to both support your local community, enhance your skills and have a lot of fun along the way.
As we get closer to opening, Legacy will need to recruit a committed core of volunteers across a wide range of projects to ensure we deliver a world-class service to Croydon’s young people. Volunteering or mentoring at Legacy Youth Zone will enable you to be at the heart of a world-class project that will turn around the options and opportunities for Croydon’s young people.
