Young People and Volunteering - The Essentials

Do you support young volunteers in your organisation?  Young People and Volunteering: The Essentials is designed specifically for youth workers and organisations that support and work with volunteers under 25 years old.  The one day workshop provides the opportunity to explore and share good practice, network with other volunteers and professionals working with young volunteers and develop an action plan to move your management of young volunteers forward.

  • Effective Recruitment of young volunteers

What opportunities do you have on offer for young volunteers and how do you get the message out there?  This session provides opportunity to identify and develop a range of exciting roles for young people and explores effective and creative methods to promote and market them.

  • Managing and Motivating young volunteers:

How do you keep young volunteers happy once they start volunteering?  This session focuses on the development of good practice in your organisation to ensure that young volunteers are supported and supervised. The session also explores a range of volunteer management issues, such as developing a code of conduct and problem solving procedures, managing difficult situations and ongoing learning and development opportunities for young volunteers.

  • Young volunteering and the wider organisation:

How well are you doing and how safe are your volunteers?  This session looks at the wider issues in your organisation such as how the Child Protection policy applies to young volunteers, the support you provide them, the importance of providing a safe volunteering experience and the development of risk assessments for young volunteer roles.  A number of effective volunteer programme evaluative methods are explored and there is opportunity to benchmark your current practice and identify actions against the UK quality standard for organisations that involve volunteers.
