"I volunteered at the Willow Burn shop in Consett with my friend a couple of years ago and found that my confidence and development of people skills increased significantly through engagement with customers.  For many young people, volunteering is seen as a way to gain experience for future job applications, however it is often ignored how much the opportunity can improve personal values, leading to the growth of skills that are beneficial in any situation - whether professional or personal."

Retail volunteering isn't the only role that can build your confidence . . . other roles such as admin, fundraising and café service can give people a sense of competence and accomplishment that is needed for healthy social wellbeing.
