If you could change one thing in your community, what would it be?
Volunteering is taking part in an activity that helps others, and can be anything from helping on canal boat trips to putting on a fashion show for a charity or local cause. There really is a huge variety of options.
Volunteering can lead to a whole new world full of exciting opportunities. It's a great way to gain work based skills, life experience, make friends, explore new ideas, and even gain nationally recognised awards… and you get all of this just through giving the gift of your time and energy to help make a difference to others.
