Become a Millennium Volunteer (MV)

You will need to be doing your volunteering in Wales – if you are wanting to volunteer outside Wales in the rest of the UK, then there are similar programmes elsewhere –

In England, they have V inspired

In Scotland, they have The Saltire Awards

In Northern Ireland, they have MV run by Volunteer Now

You are in Wales, you are somewhere between your 14th birthday and your 26th birthday and you want to volunteer or you want your volunteering to count towards MV … okay, first this is what to do if you want to find a volunteering placement (if you already have a volunteering placement, skip down to I already have a volunteering placement’)

 

Find a Volunteer Placement

There are two ways to find a volunteer placement:

1. Contact a local Youth Volunteer Advisor, there is one in every county in Wales.

 

2. Search the large online database of volunteer opportunities.

Remember, there are over 1,000 organisations in Wales who have worked with MVs, so there is likely to be something for you out there!

 

 I already have a volunteer placement!

There are three ways to register with MV now –

1) Contact your local Volunteer Centre and ask to sign up – each county in Wales has a Youth Volunteer Advisor (YVA) working in a Volunteer Centre who GwirVol supports to sign you up to MV. There is a list of advisors on this website – let them know you are interested and they will sign you up.

2) Ask your placement if they are an MV delivery partner – if they don’t know about MV then they can either e-mail us at mv@wcva.org.uk to find out or chances are they aren’t one of our partners!

Search opportunities

Find a volunteering opportunity near you and register your interest. Go on, what are you waiting for? If you don’t try it you won’t know what you’re missing!
