Volunteer passport launched in Scotland

Volunteer Development Scotland has launched an online 'volunteer passport', in which young people can record and share their volunteering experiences.

The MV Volunteering Passport can also be used as a way for 16 to 25-year-olds to record their volunteering hours and claim MV awards. The awards are available to young people who have completed 50, 100 or 200 hours of volunteering.

The passport website also contains a searchable database of MV-compatible volunteering opportunities managed by VDS or local volunteer centres.

Earlier this year v, which aims to encourage youth volunteering in England, also announced that it would develop volunteer passports from next January in order to help young people explain to employers about the skills they have acquired through volunteering.
