Millennium Volunteer Award
Millennium Volunteers is a national programme designed to promote and recognise sustained volunteering among young people aged between 14 to 24. The Programme aims to offer challenges and opportunities for young people to participate, learn and develop; to set a standard for voluntary opportunities for young people; to increase recognition for volunteering as an expression of citizenship and to make a positive impact within local communities. The programme does this through nine principles, which are sustained personal commitment, community benefit, voluntary participation, inclusiveness, ownership by young people, variety, partnership, quality and recognition.
“This scheme allows young people to build on their interests, to develop themselves and make a difference to their community at the same time. Young people may be already volunteering but not getting the recognition for all their hard work so why not sign up now – it’s free and always looks good on CV’s and UCAS forms”.
