Launch of Volunteer Now Youth Impact Awards
The Power of Youth
We are delighted to be launching our Youth Impact Awards next week, and we would like to invite you to come along to a special webinar for ‘Power of Youth Day’ on Wednesday 2 June from 12-1pm. Power of Youth Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the contribution of young people through volunteering and social action.
In line with this year’s #VolunteersWeek theme “A Time to Say Thanks”, this webinar will showcase and applaud our young volunteers who have selflessly donated their time for the benefit of communities across Northern Ireland.
Now, more than two decades later, we are delighted to exclusively reveal a brand new name and look for the programme as we embark on a new future for young volunteers.
