YVolunteer - Engaging youth volunteers
The YVolunteer youth volunteering program helps give young people a voice in volunteering. Volunteering can help put young people on a pathway to finding a job, as well as building meaningful social connections and confidence.
Volunteering WA's newly developed yvolunteer.org.au website will share resources, stories, training, and volunteer experiences for young people to introduce them to Western Australia's vibrant volunteering sector. The website will be available to view in late 2021, and will officially launch for youth in January 2022.
Information sessions with youth in the Peel region and the South West, along with training and tips for VIOs on how to recruit youth volunteers are currently being planned.

This project is made possible with thanks to support from the Department of Communities, and has been extended to the Peel and South West regions with support from Lotterywest.
