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.

Claire Hinchliff
Name: Claire Hinchliff
Age: 23

When did you first become a volunteer?
My Scouting life started off when I was 8 years old and joined my local Cub Pack. From there I moved through Scouts and into Explorers.

What is your current volunteer role?
I am a Beaver Leader at All Saints, when I turned 18 it seemed like such a natural thing for me to become a Leader, so just two months later I received my warrant on what was the 100th anniversary of Scouting.

Where you able to continue volunteering with the demands of University?
When I moved to Dundee to attend university I began helping out with a Scout Troop there. I found this not only a great way to remain involved in Scouting, but it also provided a unique part of my student life. Soon I was asked to help on a one-off occasion with the Beavers which eventually became much more frequent. I loved my time with the Beavers and Scouts while at university.
