Since 2020, we have been providing successful volunteer opportunities for young people, as a legacy of the great support offered by our local community during Covid-19.
Following the positive impact young volunteers have had on the Trust, we are committed to continue supporting young people, aged 16 plus, to become a volunteer for RWT and support them in their career aspirations within the NHS.
Why become a Youth Volunteer?
- Build a wealth of skills, experience and connections across the Trust
- Show future employers that you are committed and dedicated to your professional and personal development
- Help with CV building and career-based workshops
- Advise on university or job applications
- Open doors into careers within the NHS
- We have mentors/ buddies within the volunteer programme to support new, inexperienced or unconfident volunteers
- Providing reward and recognition opportunities for volunteers – awards!
- To undertake further engagement with young people, finding out what matters to them, and devising the volunteering programme around this
- Using the feedback and recommendations made from young volunteers to plan the programme effectively
- Take part in the National Volunteer Certificate recognised by the NHS
- Sign up to our RWT employability Award – offering advice, support and guidance for starting your career within the NHS!
We want to show that young volunteers, people like You, are the future of the NHS!
Your journey starts here, and we hope to give hundreds of young volunteers the chance to make a real difference in the lives of other people in their communities, make new friends, enhance their existing skills and learn about the wide variety of NHS Careers.
