Information providers

All the providers of youth volunteering opportunities use a wide variety of social media to market their programmes. They use methods that will most appeal to young people.

The National Citizen Service providers present the programme in schools and colleges to promote it directly to young people.

Key initiatives

Volunteer Now is one of the lead organisations which works to promote, develop and support all-age volunteering across Northern Ireland. Its website has a database of volunteering opportunities. The website and database has a dedicated section for young people (youth and under 30s).
