Are you 14-24 years old?! Joining Xplode gives you the chance to develop your skills, realise your potential and create positive change in your community!

We’re the only magazine led by young people and we’re looking for people like you to get involved!

Across three months, you’ll create a magazine, write articles, take photographs and deliver a campaign to make things better in your area.

What’s involved?

  1. Your volunteering journey will start with an informal meeting where you’ll get to meet other amazing young people
  2. You’ll then decide what you want to focus on – with the help of our team you’ll develop a plan
  3. There’ll be an opportunity to plan your social action project (this is where you and others will pick a topic that’s important to you and decide how you want to create positive change in your community
  4. We’ll sort you out with getting face to face with employers in our industry insight sessions

What’s the commitment?

It’s completely free for you to take part – we’ll sort out the refreshments and pay your travel costs. Our offices are in Bolton town centre and there’ll be something happening every two weeks that’ll last around two hours (in an evening).

Interested? Fill out the application form below and we’ll get back to you! 

Your details will be kept on file for six months after you apply and will only be used to contact you about volunteering opportunities and pre-volunteering checks.
