Volunteering Opportunities for Young People (under 18s)

Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, build confidence and gain experience.

There are a range of organisations in Bolton who engage young volunteers (under the age of 18) via lots of different roles. These include things like:

• Helping in charity shops
• Helping to run groups
• Talking to people
• Helping animals
• Looking after the environment

If you are interested in volunteering in Bolton, please contact our friendly Volunteering Services team on 01204 546 060.

Before you give us a call, have a think about what you might like to do as a volunteer and the types of organisations you might be interested in volunteering for. Don’t worry if they don’t necessarily advertise volunteering positions for young people – it is useful for our Volunteering Services team to learn more about what interests you and what you would like to do.

You could even use our Find A Group tool to see what is happening in your local area before you call.

Once we’ve spoken to you on the phone we will invite you to come and meet us for a more in depth chat.
