Where can I volunteer during the summer?

I want to do some kind of volunteering or something charitable with my friend during the summer holidays, but I don't know what we can do. I want to do something around events.

It’s great to see that you are keen on volunteering. It can show potential employers that you have dedication, drive and initiative.

You can search for current volunteering opportunities to suit you by searching do-it’s online database of volunteering opportunities, or you can get in touch with your nearest local volunteer bureau. Your local volunteer centre will also have details about voluntary work around where you live. Local papers would be worth looking at as well (you can probably read through these for free at your local library).

Something also worth mentioning is that www.vinspired.com, have a facility on their website that allows you to search for volunteering opportunities in your. You can also register on their website in order for you to upload entries of the volunteering you have completed and then you can apply for their volunteering awards called v Awards. This is a great way for you to get the recognition you deserve for the effort you put in to your volunteer work.
