Volunteer roles vary widely from positions in well established charities on a regular basis to supporting small community groups as and when needed. The experiences gained through volunteering can be invaluable whether you’re volunteering as a school-leaver or you’re exploring a new sector of work.

Here are some experiences of volunteering in Luton.

My personal experiences of volunteering have been extremely helpful in developing my capability to co-ordinate projects and collaborate with different types of people. A recent project required extensive communication between various parties to ensure all aspects of the campaign were thoroughly prepared and smoothly executed. In addition to this, there were many opportunities for presentations which improved my ability to articulate information whilst enhancing my self-confidence. Subsequently, volunteering equipped me with critical skills that could be transferred to every sphere of life including academic and professional experience. Hamza, 22
