Volunteering & Volunteer Support in the Youth Sector

The Volunteering Support Manual is the third element in the development of NYCI’s structures and supports to assist organisations in attracting, recruiting and retaining volunteers. It follows the Policy on Volunteering adopted by NYCI’s Assembly in November 2006 and the Charter on Volunteering developed in early 2007.

All of these resources have been produced as a direct result of feed-back and inputs received during the development of NYCI’s first Strategic Plan during 2002. The Plan contained specific aims which included the promotion and development of volunteering as a worthwhile activity that is fundamental to society and also directed NYCI to support and develop best practice for involving volunteers in voluntary youth organisations.
