Young Volunteers

Becoming a young volunteer is very worthwhile. It develops your skills, gives you responsibility and you’ll have a great time making friends along the way.

There is lots more information on becoming a young volunteer in the Volunteering section of our ASA zone.The first thing is to decide what you want to do as a volunteer. Some roles have age requirements and need training.

Take a look at this table in the Volunteer section of our ASA zone at the roles available for young volunteers and training needed by age. It will help you decide what is right for you.
