We are committed to encouraging and enabling young people to volunteer.
The communities of Wales will benefit as more young people are given the opportunity to express themselves as active citizens.
By working closely with our partners in the Third Sector, business, government and young people themselves we are working hard to encourage more young people to get involved in volunteering.
GwirVol is a partnership between the Voluntary, Community, Public and Private sectors and led by the views of young people in Wales. The Partnership exists to take forward the recommendations of the Russell Commission. The recommendations are designed to provide a framework to bring about a step change in the numbers and diversity of young volunteers and to give them more and better quality volunteering opportunities.
Aims and Objectives
The aim of the Partnership is:
- to increase the current percentage of young people between the ages of 16 – 25 who want to volunteer;
- to increase the scope of volunteering opportunities, to include those young people who experience barriers, in terms of disadvantage, ability, and ethnicity;
- to celebrate the involvement of young people, through increased recognition and awards; and
- to ensure that every volunteering opportunity represents a high quality positive experience.
Further information can be found on the Gwirvol portal website.
As of April, 2011 GwirVol also incorporates Millennium Volunteers, which is an hours-based volunteering programme for young people aged 16-24.
Further nformation on Millennium Volunteers can be found on the GwirVol Portal website.
