Mahdlo is a state-of-the-art youth facility that aims to deliver high quality, innovative activities and experiences for young people from Oldham aged 8-19 (up to 25 for young people with a disability). We do this from our base on Egerton Street and in venues across the borough to ensure that every young person from Oldham has somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. Young people can get involved in dance, boxing, climbing, arts and crafts, drama, football, cricket, pool, table tennis and even just relax with their peers in our chill zone. We are looking for positive role models who can run and assist in activities, encouraging young people to take part. Whether you want experience specifically in youth work or you want to make a difference in your local community, we would love to hear from you.
At Mahdlo Youth Zone, our Junior members (aged 8-12) can take part in a range of different activities including: arts and crafts, board games, climbing, cricket, dance, drama, football, gym, pool, table tennis, trips outdoors and more. Our state-of-the-art building also gives young people the space to relax with their peers, watch a film, listen to music - ultimately, we aim to give young people somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. To achieve this, we require a dedicated team who can run exciting activities and really be there for young people in Oldham.

Volunteers will assist in the running and supervision of activities in the Youth Zone and are also invited to run their own activities so young people can make the most of Mahdlo. There are opportunities to access Mahdlo training sessions to build your knowledge and skillset. Team Mahdlo is a friendly and welcoming workforce who are passionate about celebrating the success of young people and staff achievements.
Mahdlo is based on Egerton Street in Oldham, a 5-minute walk from the tram stops (Oldham Central and Oldham Mumps) as well as Oldham Bus Station. We reimburse our volunteers' travel expenses up to the value of £5. We really appreciate our volunteers giving their time to help us be there for young people in Greater Manchester so get involved!
