Right from the moment we set up It’s Good 2 Give we wanted to encourage giving of time, skills, ideas as well as money.
We have had Young Ambassadors for over 4 years. We give them experiences and training and peer support. All with an aim to have young people representing It’s Good 2 Give and showing them how volunteering can be fun and very good for you!
We’d love to see some of our Young Ambassadors become Young Trustees of our or another charity in the future. They learn basic office skills, presentation skills, introduction to first aid and how to organise and run an event. They do arts and crafts and organise a fundraising activity for themselves and must commit to 2 hours volunteering each month.
The Young Ambassadors will be able to count the hours volunteered with us as part of other initiatives like Jass, Duke of Edinburgh, Saltire Award though, of course, the focus is on supporting the work of It’s Good 2 Give!
