Funded and supported volunteering placements for young people in Glasgow.

We are currently recruiting young people aged 16 - 25 years to participate.

Working with our partners Glasgow Council Voluntary Sector (GCVS), Glasgow Life are proud to offer funded and supported volunteering placements for young people who often face barriers.

Recognising that some individuals are not yet ready for a work placement it offers an opportunity to develop confidence, skills and experience to move onto a positive destination. Designed to match personal interests, priorities, skills and experience, there is a wide range of opportunities to choose from across the city.
