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.
From directly mentoring and supporting our young people and helping in our offices to building partnerships we have a range of ways for you to volunteer your time. The first step is to get in touch and let us know!

- 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
