Volunteer to teach children about safety

What's Junior Citizens?

Junior Citizens is an education programme that encourages pupils to think for themselves and to prioritise their own safety.

Year 6 pupils experience eight different safety scenarios during their two hour visit. They are taught a variety of skills on how to safely deal with situations that could arise during their daily life. Each child is given the opportunity to practice making a 999 telephone call.

The aim is to allow the children the opportunity of recognising and dealing with danger in a realistic way which they will remember, should they need to cope with a similar situation in real life.

The programme runs out of our Safety Centre in Rewely Road Fire Station, Oxford for 13 weeks during the school year and each school visit lasts for approximately two hours. 

  • Morning session: 9.30 - 11.30am
  • Afternoon session: 12.30 - 14.30pm

What’s involved?

  • Teaching one of the eight safety scenarios to year 6 pupils
  • You’ll receive full training and continuous support

  • To be able to commit to at least 10 sessions during the 13 week period.
  • An interest in teaching children
  • Good communications skills
  • Confident, outgoing personality
  • Willingness to undergo an DBS check
