Q: Do I need previous experience?
A: No. If you have it, then great, but enthusiasm and commitment matter much more.

Q: What sort of training and support will I get?
A: We will provide you with training before you begin volunteering with us. We will always offer you support during your time with us – please get in contact about anything and we will be here to help.

Q: I don’t agree that college or university are for everyone. Can I still participate?
A: Absolutely! We’re not about funnelling everyone into post-school education. However, we believe strongly that everyone is entitled to make the best possible choices about their own future based on accurate, relevant information.

Q: Do I need my own transport?
A: Not necessarily, though it is helpful if you do have. LIFT OFF will help out with lifts where we can, but this is by no means guaranteed.

Q: Is there a minimum number of events volunteers need to be involved in?
A: No. However we will remove people from our system who have done no workshops or events within a year.
