Volunteering with Teens Unite isn’t just about what you can do for us, but what volunteering can do for you too. The benefits are endless and as we embrace Student Volunteering Week, we wanted to share the benefits of volunteering with Teens Unite.
Young People Helping Young People
Teens Unite supports those aged 13-24 following a cancer diagnosis, so as a student volunteer you will identify with the age group you are helping and probably have lots in common, making it a fun and enjoyable experience.
There’s Lots on Offer
There are many ways that you can volunteer with Teens Unite as a student; from helping at fundraising events to admin and office support and community fundraising. You may gain valuable skills that will help you in the future.
We understand that as a student you have a busy schedule, with coursework and assignments to complete, so we will work flexibly around you. Whether you want to volunteer once a week, once a month or as and when you can, we will appreciate any support you can provide.
Enhance Your CV
Did you know? 73% of the UK’s leading businesses said they would employ someone with volunteering experience over someone who hadn’t? Volunteering with Teens Unite can really strengthen your CV or higher education application and you may even be able to call on us for a reference.
Boost Your Confidence
Volunteering is a fantastic way to experience different situations, try new things and meet new people; all of which can really boost your confidence.
Meet New People
Volunteering with Teens Unite means you will have plenty of opportunities to meet new people- you never know, you could make some new friends who are just as interested in helping others and making a difference as you are.
Improve Your Health
There’s no better reason to volunteer than to improve your health! Studies show it can help you to sleep better, release tension and boost your immune system.
