Volunteering for Youth & Under 30s

 

Volunteering is a great way to give something back, looks good on CVs and applications, lets you meet new people and is fun! Plus, if you're aged 14-25, you can be recognised through Millennium Volunteers.

What makes people like you volunteer? Well, here's your chance to see what they are all about

Gillian McCausland
Name: Gillian McCausland
Age: 19

What inspired you to get involved?
I got involved in the World Police and Fire Games because I wanted to be involved in something big and to gain new experiences. Meeting new people from all around the world whilst working in Northern Ireland seemed like a great opportunity.

What does your volunteering involve?
In St Johns Ambulance my volunteering involved learning first aid and attending events in case any one needed first aid. In GFS I help out with the 7-8 year olds, helping them with their arts and crafts, PE and Bible Study. This year I will also be teaching them first aid. During the World Police and Fire Games I was a games ambassador, welcoming people and helping with any problems they had.

What skills or qualities are required for your volunteering role?
My volunteering roles have required me to be up for a challenge, committed, outgoing and friendly. Being able to be caring and work in a team were also really important.
