Volunteer Now run the Millennium Volunteers for young people as well as providing a searchable database for volunteer opportunities. Volunteering is a great way to gain new skills, meet new people, give something back to your community and have fun in the process. However, to make sure you get the most out of your volunteering you should also think about becoming a Millennium Volunteer (MV). The programme is open to anyone aged 14-25 who currently volunteers or would like to start and wants to have their commitment, skills and experience recognised.
MV has been designed to be as simple as possible and to work around you and your studies, job, hobbies and anything else you've got going on - you also get to volunteer where you like, as often as you like and in as many places as you like! As part of the programme you get a certificate backed by your organisation and the Department of Education for the hours that you got, which along with the support and training your organisation provides, means you get something that looks great on your CV and job and UCAS applications and is endorsed by employers and universities.
