Volunteering for Young People

Are you under 25? Young people all across Edinburgh are getting involved in volunteering; doing something new, boosting their CVs, making friends and having fun.  You could be one of them.

You could be coaching sports clubs, teaching other young people about drugs, alcohol or homelessness, organising fundraising events, putting your culinary skills to good use or helping preserve the environment. All of these opportunies are available to you and many, many more!

Inspired? We are here to help you find the perfect opportunity!


You could:

  • Come along to our youth drop in on Fridays at our West End centre between 2pm-4pm. We will talk you through the options and help you with getting in touch with organisations that you’re interested in volunteering with.
  • Search the current volunteering options on our website to get some ideas – if you find some you’re interested in the organisations contact details are there for you to make that first contact.
  • Can’t make the youth drop in on a Friday? Contact us at saltire@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk  / 0131 225 0630 to make a one to one appointment.
