Volunteer for us

With the commitment of our volunteers, we're able to offer a support network to young people facing significant barriers to employment, education or training.

Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do


Last year, mentors donated over 220,000 hours to The Prince's Trust.

We’ve always been reliant on dedicated volunteers like you to help us in our mission of turning the lives of young people around. Whether you’re helping in our offices and centres or working one-to-one with young people, your support can have a powerful impact and long lasting effects.

Use the filter below to explore the roles available in your region. If you find a role you’re interested in, we’d love to hear from you – simply fill in our enquiry form, telling us the role you’d like to apply for, and we’ll be in touch with you soon.

We're working on a new volunteering offer

We are currently pausing our face-to-face volunteer recruitment whilst we redevelop and launch our exciting new volunteering offer. Please check back on this page in late summer.

You can still sign up as an online mentor volunteer if you can’t wait that long – apply here

Thank you for your interest.

Becoming a volunteer

For the majority of roles, you don't need to have any experience, specialist skills or qualifications. The qualities we look for in our volunteers are:

  • Reliability
  • Ability to relate to and empathise with young people and their aspirations
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills, especially listening skills
  • Ability to be non-judgemental, self-aware, patient, understanding, flexible, positive and supportive in all situations
  • Ability to challenge own assumptions and negativity
