Welcome to our new website!

You’ve probably noticed that things have changed a bit. We haven’t finished updating all our pages yet, so some sections are still using this design. Please bear with us...

Youth volunteering


You're unique. You can make a difference. Whatever you're into, we can show you how your passions, skills and talents can make a real impact.

Become a y-volunteer

With y-volunteer, young people aged 16 to 19 volunteer some of their time to help others, doing what they enjoy.

Through the scheme they can get involved in local issues they care about. At the same time gaining experience, confidence and skills.

Volunteers can be involved in projects such as:

  • Sports coaching
  • Environmental issues
  • Youth leadership
  • Music
  • Dance

No previous skills needed, just a desire to get involved.

Work placements 

Here’s a chance to have a taste of the career you’ve always dreamed of and gain much needed skills, experience and confidence to impress future employers.  Some placements are accredited, so young people will receive a certificate when they finish.

Our friendly Y-volunteer team will always be at the end of the phone to offer advice or support whilst you are completing your placement.  For information of future events visit whtvr.org.
