Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and to enhance your CV.
It can give you valuable work experience, the satisfaction of time well spent and it will also be fun and enjoyable!
There is no age limit to volunteering but there can sometimes be difficulties for people under 16 to be placed within volunteering opportunities due to insurance reasons. If you have any concerns, ask the organisation that you are applying to.
