I volunteer. What is your SUPERPOWER?
Volunteering knows no age limit.
Often we set out to make a difference in the lives of others only to discover we have made a difference in our own - Ellie Braun Haley
Young people and children involved in volunteering and social action
There is a volunteering opportunity for everyone; whether sport or conservation is your thing, or you want to fundraising for your favourite charity or care for animals, there’s an endless list of the types of projects you can get involved in.
Young people involved in volunteering often learn new skills and gain confidence in the process. It is also a great way to stand out from the crowd when the time comes to apply for jobs or university.
You can get involved in one off projects or make a regular commitment to help a local charity or community group. Or you might want to volunteer for a longer block of time, such as in the school holidays or during your gap year. You can also get involved in volunteering and social action with your school or as part a scheme such as the Duke of Edinburgh award.
On Thursday 11th July 2019 at Uckfield College we will be celebrating youth volunteering in our community. If you know a young person who is making a difference please get in touch to nominate them.
