The job market can be tough for young people. Volunteering gives them the edge when it comes to getting hired.
That's why we introduced our vInspired awards scheme. It gives young volunteers something tangible to add to their CVs and shows potential employers, colleges or universities the hours they've clocked up.
When a volunteer applies for an award (for 10, 30, 50 or 100 hours of volunteering) they can choose to have us validate their application or the organisation they're working directly with. Validating your volunteers' awards is a great way of retaining as well as rewarding talent - our easy to use scheme provides a framework for your volunteers' progression and a tangible way to recognise it.
We would love to welcome you to our growing network of awards providers!
To apply, first you'll need to have registered your organisation. Once you're logged in, click the 'Become an awards provider' option on your dashboard, complete the application form and we'll be in touch within 5 working days.
