Volunteering is a great way to build confidence and develop those transferable skills employers are looking for team work, resilience and flexibility.
It is also a great way to try out different jobs and discover your strengths!
Involvement in volunteering will improve your chances of getting into learning, your employability skills and your success in the future.
