‘We’re so proud to be a volunteer led movement, working in close partnership with our staff team. It’s through the kindness and commitment of our volunteers, at every level, that we’re able to make a difference to so many young lives. Being part of the national team, and supporting the movement comes with both responsibility and reward – in particular, the satisfaction of knowing we are helping a generation gain skills for life. If you are able, please do consider taking on one of these vital roles.’
