There’s a good chance you’ve arrived here because you’ve discovered that we help young people in Scotland to get on in life while volunteering with a charity. We’re passionate about young people and believe in their ability to positively transform both their own lives and those of the people around them. That is why, since 2005, we have been supporting young people to develop their confidence and skills to move into employment, training or education.
We provide a personal plan for each young person. This includes a volunteer placement with a local charity and one-to-one mentoring, as well as ongoing support from a member of our team. And when we say ‘ongoing support’, we mean it! We are there for our young people, every step of the way, even after a volunteer placement comes to an end. Because of that, 78% of our volunteers continue on to something better.
The problems faced by Scotland’s young people are becoming more and more complex. They often have a range of barriers stopping them from realising their potential. We enable young people to be a force for good through volunteering, while gaining work experience and an opportunity to develop themselves. Our charity partners get additional skills, talents and enthusiasm. We enable young people to be a stronger part of their local communities and give something back.
We’re a friendly bunch and work across Scotland, so why not reach out for a chat with our team for more information. Make volunteering happen. Your time is now!
