Here’s how to celebrate Volunteer’s Week!

Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering and takes place 1st-7th June every year.

This year, Action Tutoring wants to thank our wonderful volunteers for their dedication and commitment to our pupils this year and beyond. Thanks to them, the young people we support feel better equipped going into their SATs and GCSEs after a tough couple of years. 

We also want to extend a special thank you to our advocates for their extra commitment to spreading the word about our charity. Word of mouth is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal, and we’re so grateful to anyone who shares their volunteer tutoring experiences with friends and family.

Ways you can get involved in Volunteers’ Week 2022

  • Are you attending a Big Jubilee Lunch over the bank holiday weekend? Share your volunteering experience with people in your community and inspire others to do the same. 
  • On 6th June, Volunteers’ Week is coordinating with the #iwill movement for Power of Youth Day. #iwill is a UK-wide movement helping more young people make a difference in their communities through social action. Share your stories to be part of the conversation, or simply read for inspiration.

Elsie volunteered with Action Tutoring for one term as part of a university placement module. Curious to know more about her experience? Read about it here.

  • Share a post on social media thanking the volunteers of a charity you’re passionate about. Tag the charity so they can re-share as part of their week, too.
  • Find out what’s happening around Volunteers’ Week at your university, place of work or in the general community and see how you can get involved.
  • Contact your local volunteer centre and find the right opportunity for you!
