Part of a Match Fund programme, the aim is to create a new wave of short term, full and part time opportunities which tap into young peoples interests and challenge preconceptions of volunteering.
The organisation is also offering one day Innovation Workshops to help charities with funding partnerships to create new programmes that will make make volunteering more relevant and attractive to young people whatever their background.
Constance Agyeman, head of Match Fund at v explained: “Being able to double the funding of a new volunteering project is an amazing boost for any programme. But to generate truly new and innovative opportunities that appeal to a wider audience of 16 to 25’s – funding is only part of the picture.
“The Innovation Workshops aim to help charities make compelling applications by better understanding v’s assessment priorities and creating exciting new initiatives to produce high impact community benefit and change young peoples lives”.
Match Fund can double the budget of youth volunteering activities ranging from local one-off projects to national high profile programmes. Funding is available until February 2010.
