Localise Youth Volunteering
Localise youth volunteering challenges young people to come together and make a difference in their local community by being of service to others.
Expires on: 18 June 2021
The Volunteering For All Award is a nationwide initiative that recognises and affirms volunteering and chartable work undertaken by young people from all backgrounds and circumstances. Volunteering For All honours the spirit of volunteerism amongst young people, it is not a measure of quantity of volunteering taking place. This award celebrates the positive contribution all young people make to the place in which they live.
Selected students in this school participated in a two-hour workshop facilitated by Localise Youth Volunteering and formed the foundation of celebrating the diversity and voluntary work in the school. The group was challenged to create a Volunteering For All Charter. This charter outlines the students rights and responsibilities as volunteers. In the second challenge, students surveyed and recorded volunteering already taking place in the school amongst the student body via a pre-made online survey. To successfully pass this challenge, a 70% response rate of the student body must be obtained. The school has successfully completed these challenges and has received the national Volunteering For All Award.
