Young people and volunteering

If you're aged 16-25 and you want to make a difference then we want to hear from you.

"I'm so proud of what I've achieved this year. It's about bridging barriers and bringing people together..."

Jon, full-time volunteer with CSV

Volunteer with CSV and you'll get the freedom to make your own choices and put your ideas into action. Volunteering as a young person with CSV isn't about us telling you what to do. It's about giving you the power to make things happen.

We're here to help you work out what needs to change in your local community and giving you the training, guidance and support to make that change.

You'll meet new people, learn new skills, improve your CV and feel great from knowing you made a big difference.
