I’ve got an article in today’s Schools Week entitled six steps to create good volunteering programmes. It is based on the recent paper published by The Careers & Enterprise Company on Involving Young People in Volunteering. What Works?
In preparation for #Iwillweek, Professor Tristram Hooley discusses the evidence on young people’s volunteering.
Young people are motivated by doing something to help others, to improve their community or to provide support for those less fortunate than themselves. Because of this lots of schools make opportunities available to young people to engage in volunteering and other forms of social action including participation in sports clubs.
