Youth Volunteering

Volunteering for Young People 

Although volunteering is for anyone regardless of age, though as a young person, it can seem daunting to add another priority amongst multiple competing priorities, the good news is that volunteering is flexible, can fit around your studying, and offers you a unique experience in an area of employment that you want to work in while also giving you new skills. As with most things, it’s about taking the time to find the right organisation and role for you. If you are undecided, you can try out different opportunities as most offer taster sessions! 

Students who choose to volunteer can benefit from real-world experiences that reaffirm what they are taught in the classroom. Should you choose to volunteer in an area that differs completely from your studies, the benefit is a wider perspective on the world around us.  

Organisations who take on younger volunteers acknowledge that they take on responsibilities such as ensuring the young person gets a good, well-rounded experience and are willing to provide an enhanced level of support when needed.  

CTSI offers the Saltire Awards scheme for young volunteers aged 12-25. It is the Scottish Government’s way of celebrating, recognising, and rewarding the commitment, contribution, and achievements of young volunteers in Clackmannanshire. You can read more information about the Saltire Awards here.
