Young Volunteers Project 

(Knutsford and surrounding areas)

CVS has received funding from the Cheshire Community Foundation to deliver a project aimed at supporting young people into volunteering.

The project will be delivered in Knutsford and Chelford and has two main aims:

  • To engage young people in Knutsford in volunteering
  • To work with Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector organisations in Knutsford and the surrounding areas to offer suitable, meaningful volunteering opportunities

As part of the project we will be:

  • Engaging young people in the design of an effective marketing campaign to promote the benefits of volunteering
  • Supporting VCFS organisations to engage young people in service design and delivery with good practice examples, resources and 1-2-1 support
  • Dispelling some of the myths and concerns that some organisations may have about working with volunteers aged 14-18
  • Producing a toolkit of resources specific to young people in volunteering
  • Establishing a network for organisations that work with young people to meet together and discuss learning from the project.
  • Matching local young people with meaningful and interesting volunteer opportunities
  • Mentoring young people through their volunteer journey
