Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is about helping others. However, there is so much you can get out of volunteering too. Everybody is different and there are so many different reasons to get involved.  This is what some of our volunteers have said:

  • Learn new skills and qualities such as problem solving and being part of a team
  • Gain confidence- communicating with others and expressing your ideas
  • Extra experience in the field that could lead to potential employment
  • Make your CV sparkle- Universities/ colleges and employers are impressed by volunteering
  • Make friends with people who share similar interests to you
  • Keep fit
  • Have fun

Without volunteers, Europe's Largest Annual Youth sporting event could not happen!
