This year the finalised topic is How do young volunteers make an impact; at home and overseas? Using the World Café method, we will explore various themes within this such as:

  • Short term vs long term / Community vs individual

Differing objectives and impacts.

  • Global Citizenship and impact in the UK

How volunteering overseas often leads volunteering within your own community and taking responsibility/being more socially conscious/aware etc.

  • The role of young people as volunteers in development

What it means to have young people volunteering (rather than discussion on whether it is a good thing or not).

  • Volunteer to career

Personal development and opportunities for young people to learn grow and build social conscious careers and personal lifestyles.
