Volunteering for teenagers & young people

Are you interested in learning some new skills, meeting people & contributing to your community…..

The benefits of volunteering for teens and young adults are great…

It widens your understanding of other peoples’ lives, giving you a new view of the world, the problems in it and how other people work to manage or solve these.

Giving helps your own health & wellbeing. Volunteer work amongst some of the most severe social problems can also paradoxically be a source of hope.

It expands your own social network, bringing you in contact with people that you might otherwise not meet.

It looks great on college and university applications and is a good reference to discuss at interviews.

Repeated or dedicated work shows commitment and demonstrates that you care about making an impact. This adds real power to your CV.

Neighbourhood Connecters

No specialist skills or experience needed – just compassion and availability. Any experience with vulnerable adults would be beneficial. Volunteers are ‘matched’ with individuals based on their availability, experience, interests and locality. Training is provided and support is given throughout. The commitment involves giving a few hours a week or fortnight for a period of around three to six months. A DBS check must be completed.
