Voluntary Service


What is Service?

This section of the Award provides a young person with a sense of worth having given voluntary service and help to others and their community. The opportunity to give voluntary service over an extended period of time enables young people to witness and experience the benefits that their service provides to others and encourages them to become better citizens.

Benefits for young people: 

  • Offers young people the opportunity to engage with society
  • Helps young people gain an understanding of the importance of their role within their immediate and global community
  • Gives young people the chance to connect with individuals and groups they may have previously overlooked or not been aware of, developing a young person's humanity and character
