The national Youth Volunteering charity v, is on the lookout for 20 young volunteers.
Our thanks for this news item to “Reach Out”, the e-bulletin from Community Action Derby
v is led by the interests, cares and passions of young people. Each year they recruit 20 young people to their national youth advisory board. These 20, fun, dynamic and inspiring young people make up v20, influence the work of v and ensure that it remains focused on young people. v20 advise v and help v to meet its goals to:
- Increase the numbers of young people volunteering;
- Improving volunteering opportunities for young people;
- Increase the diversity of young volunteers; and
- Act as a youth volunteering ambassador.
The v20 opportunity is open to all young people aged 16 to 25 in England. They are looking to recruit a diverse mix of young people, spread out across the country, for this reason they encourage all young people to consider applying to become a member of v20.
Volunteering with v20 brings huge opportunities for both personal and organisational development. It requires time, dedication, energy, creativity and a good sense of humour! Previous seasons have worked with all sorts of people from all sorts of backgrounds so flexibility and tolerance is much in demand.
If you are aware of any young people who may be interested in joining the v20 Youth Advisory Board, please forward the link to the application form which is downloadable from the vinspired website. If you have any questions about the form please email Gary Brunskill
Please note that the closing date for applications is 5:00 pm on Wednesday 17 February.
