Involving young people
Young people have the desire and ability to contribute to their community
“We have a powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends.” Mary McLeod Bethune
Volunteering gives young people the chance to achieve their goals and take on productive roles in society.
Opening up opportunities to young people means expanding volunteering opportunities to 14 -19 age group.
By motivating, welcoming and empowering young people to volunteer we act as enablers and well as recipients of their time and energy.
