Removing barriers to young people volunteering – issues paper released

Volunteering Queensland and the Queensland Family and Child Commission have released an issues paper on supporting young people to participate in volunteering in Queensland prompted by findings from the Growing up in Queensland project, which heard from over 7,000 young Queenslanders in 2018. The findings highlighted various issues including age restrictions on volunteer participation, even though young people valued volunteering as a way to gain useful skills to improve future employability and to give back to the community. The issues paper contains both young people’s perspectives and organisational perspectives on the benefits and opportunities afforded by volunteering, as well as information about legal and policy concerns, and asks readers to reflect on policy, strategy and communication to support young volunteers. Read the issues paper.
