Volunteer for us
With the commitment of our volunteers, we are 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 Business 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.

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:
- 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
Support young people on our online learning platform
Do you want to volunteer online at a time and place convenient for you? In the coming months, we will need e-volunteers to support our young people on a range of programmes on Prince’s Trust Online, from Enterprise Online to Employability. The role will involve mentoring and supporting the young person on our new platform ranging from support with interview skills to business mentoring.

Aoife Moody, one of our current e-volunteers, said:
“E-mentoring is a great option for anyone who is busy. I have never done 1:1 mentoring before because I work full-time and have a young family. I have really enjoyed mentoring and the platform is a really easy way to chat and get feedback quickly. I would highly recommend it for your own personal development and to give something back. Get involved.”
