Let's help.

Young people

If you're under 18 years old?

We offer opportunities for young people aged 14 to 18 years old with organisations that demonstrate compliance with the highest levels of governance and safeguarding. 

We work with all local sixth forms and Highlands College to enable young people to access these opportunities with Volunteering Ambassadors at all sites.

Young people benefit from these opportunities just as much as our more mature volunteers:

  1. Exposure to a wider range of people within our community, it allows them to develop empathy for those less fortunate or with special needs
  2. Being in a working environment helps to develop communication skills, teamwork, timekeeping and self-management
  3. It can increase physical activity and improve health and wellbeing
