Engage your employees and build a stronger business community with corporate volunteering

Action4Youth has identified a programme of opportunities, ideally suited to businesses and their employees, who are keen to reap the benefits of corporate volunteering.

Rosalind Lee, Fundraising Manager at Action4Youth, said: “We currently have a number of opportunities available, including; hosting a group of students and giving them an understanding of different career opportunities within your business; helping to prepare young people for a job interview; and taking part in a ‘dragons den’ panellist session to question teenagers taking part in the National Citizenship Service on their social action plans.”

“We also have more practical group volunteering opportunities at the Caldecotte Xperience, such as painting, decorating and garden maintenance, creating an accessible archery range, building an outdoor pizza oven and extending accessible pathways through the site.”

In a recent report published by NCVO, employers said that beyond the impact they want to make on their communities, participating in Employer-Supported Volunteering (ESV) benefits their employees as well as benefiting their business.

Many agreed that it was important for employers to demonstrate a good ethos and values as an organisation, and an increasing expectation among those they engaged with, whether clients or employees.

Action4Youth is a leading charity working across Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and the surrounding counties. They provide experiences and activities to inspire children and young people.
