I learnt this half way through our last volunteering project.
Volunteers voluntarily giving up their time is one of their biggest USPs.
It’s not that they might have had similar life experiences or even an apparently relevant skill set from their working life.
The message that they’re not getting paid is a powerful one.
It can be a lightbulb moment for a young person who has had lots of professionals in their life
– that someone doesn’t need to be paid to care!
