The Vale Youth Service identifies volunteers as a valuable resource to enhance our youth offer across the Vale of Glamorgan.  We consider the definition of volunteering to be:  

‘Volunteering is a voluntary act of an individual or group freely giving time and labour for the community.’ 


Volunteering in the Vale Youth Service can be undertaken by anyone, including but not limited to:

  • Under 18s – through student placements (Youth Work level 2 only), participation projects, Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, Welsh Baccalaureate

  • Over 18s – through student placements (Youth Work level 3 to higher education) or from members of the community
