Student Volunters

At Tretherras we are committed to giving our young volunteers the recognition they deserve. That’s why we support the V Inspired awards; the award & recognition scheme that truly acknowledges the time and effort our students spend volunteering.

v is an independent charity aiming to inspire a new generation of volunteers (aged 16-25) in England. They do this by funding voluntary organisations all over England to create inspiring, diverse opportunities and by helping to overcome barriers that stop people from taking action to improve lives, communities and the planet. Their aim is to create a culture where volunteering comes naturally – and where the benefits of volunteering are understood and celebrated.

Whilst working towards the vinspired awards our students will receive all the support required from Volunteer Cornwall’s Youth Volunteer Advisor, Judy Baker.

v has designed two awards to help young people get the recognition they deserve. Students can work towards a vfifty Award and complete 50 hours of volunteering in any 12 month period. Once they’ve achieved the vfifty award, they can then work towards a vimpact award, which involves completing a further 100 hours of volunteering.
