Volunteering is all about making a difference to other people’s lives. Perhaps you’re interested in animals or conservation? Or you might like to work with older people or raise money for a cause that means a lot to you? From teaching children cyber safety to starting a local recycling campaign, the Volunteering section of your DofE enables you to give your time to help others and change things for the better.

Volunteering must be undertaken through a charity or not-for-profit organisation and will involve you helping our regularly (normally weekly) for a minimum of 12 months  (see How long does it take)

You either find your own volunteering activity or talk to our Futures Team in the college who will help you source your volunteering activity.
