About Youth Volunteering

At The Centre, we’re here to support you. We champion everyone in the volunteering community, and that includes Youth volunteers. After all, if you want to make a difference, we know you can. So, why not make the most of our full range of services, designed to help young changemakers-in-the-making to find their feet?

The Volunteer Handbook offers a great introduction into what volunteering is, how you can get started and ways to progress your journey. The guide can be found on our Knowledge Base, as well as numerous resources for a true deep-dive into the sector.

For a more hands-on learning experience, you can attend our one of our monthly Bridge to Volunteering workshops. We deliver these alongside a range of upcoming events.
