The newly launched Volunteer Academy is MFC Foundation’s most recent development into raising aspirations and building more cohesive and inclusive communities, through the power of football. The Volunteer academy is open to anyone across the Tees Valley and aims to provide a ‘meaningful’ bespoke volunteering offer.

Programme Aim

Using a collaboration of internal placements and external partnerships, the Volunteer Academy aims to source the most suitable and beneficial placements for all of its volunteers. Ensuring that they have ongoing support and guidance throughout their journey. Whether individuals are wanting to volunteer to further develop their skills, broaden their horizons or just simply to give something back. The Volunteer Academy can help place volunteers through 1:1 consultation with the Volunteer Coordinator. The Volunteer academy encompasses three specific groups which are categorised into individual programmes;

We are committed to developing a robust volunteer offer which is accessible for all. Not only do we offer fantastic opportunities within the foundation across a broad range of projects, we also work with individuals who have; transportation, accessibility and Health related restrictions. Where possible, we will source projects and organisations which are local to you, and are built around your own individual needs assessment and personal aims. Ultimately, we aim to develop a consistent, independent, and ‘meaningful’ approach to volunteering.

We have a range of opportunities across the Foundation working on a weekly/regular basis, or on a more casual or ‘volunteer as you go’ basis. This means that not only do we have the capacity to allow Volunteers to shadow delivery and contribute to supporting our lessons. But that we also welcome and utilise Volunteers in our fundraising events, tournaments and charity ventures!
