ProjectScotland helps young people aged 16-30 to get on in life through volunteering, whilst doing good in their community. We place young people into transformational voluntary roles with local charities and not-for-profits. We take the time to understand their needs, interests, and hopes for the future, before matching them to a quality volunteering experience. And our programme works – 78% of our volunteers go onto further education, training, or employment within 6 months of completing their placement. This is because we don’t just do volunteering.
To give our young people every chance we run job-hunting workshops on CV writing, interview skills, and LinkedIn. Our young people also benefit from the one-to-one support of a ProjectScotland mentor who helps with growing confidence, goal setting, career planning and much more. We also cover travel expenses to make sure our volunteers aren’t out of pocket.
