What motivates our volunteers and what do they get out of it? Our community of nearly 40,000 volunteers from a huge range of jobs across the UK all have a story to tell about why they want to help inspire young people to do the jobs they love. Read some of their stories here.
I remember specifically not knowing what I was interested in for a career, I knew I enjoyed communicating with people and entertaining people but I didn’t think there was any career for me.
