JLGB breaks ground with Charity Seminar 'The Next Steps in Youth Volunteering'

JLGB’s evolve team welcomed over 30 professionals from a vast range of charities and organisations across the 3rd sector from the Jewish community and beyond, at their seminar ‘The Next Steps in Youth Volunteering’ at Jhub in Hampstead last Tuesday 8th March. People travelled from as far from Wales to attend the seminar that shared best practice around youth volunteering and social action. Young people often struggle to find suitable volunteering placements, JLGB’s evolve team help to remove any barriers by supporting charities to be faith sensitive and more youth friendly.

Keynote speaker, Fiona Ellison, Voluntary and Public Sector Campaign Manager at Step Up To Serve said how thrilled she was to see how JLGB’s evolve frames the principles of the #iwill campaign.

The JLGB have been running the phenomenally successful Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for the last 60 years. This is rapidly becoming a rite of passage for Jewish teenagers with 51% taking part each year. However, many DofE participants told us how difficult it was to find a volunteering placement.  To remedy this issue JLGB not only work directly with charities by providing bespoke support and seminars to share best practice. JLGB have created evolve, an online platform that matches young people directly to exciting and relevant opportunities based on their skills, award level and location. What makes evolve truly unique is that young people can record all of their social action online and all in one place, removing old fashioned log books. Gia Nathan, JLGB’s Volunteering and Citizenship Manager explained “evolve is a revolution in youth volunteering, tracking a young person’s induvial journey from their Junior Citizenship Award at primary school, to their Yoni Jesner Award, Duke of Edinburgh’s, NCS, vInspired Award at secondary school and Vscheme at university.   JLGB is proud to work in partnerships with local, Jewish , National and Global organisations to help even more young people achieve their potential and take a full and active role in society.”
