Why should I get involved?
If you’re interested in getting involved with a campaign about something that matters to you, we can offer you unpaid voluntary opportunities. However, there may also be opportunities for future paid work.
Placements can be fully flexible around your current commitments. We are able to sign off on hours for work experience or toward awards such as the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE).
You don’t need any previous experience, but you need to be aged between 11-25 and either live, work, or study in Wales.
We can offer you training to help you upskill in content creation, including:
- Writing for web
Getting involved in a campaign is perfect for anyone interested in journalism, communications and marketing, or for those who would like a platform to raise awareness of important issues.
