Volunteering ideas

When completing each section of your DofE, you should develop a programme which is specific and relevant to you. Volunteering gives you the chance to make a difference to people’s lives and use your skills and experience to help your local community. It gives you the opportunity to become involved in a project or with an organisation that you really care about, this might involve:

  • Helping People
  • Community action
  • Coaching, teaching and leadership
  • Working with the environment or animals
  • Helping a charity

Don’t forget to check with your Leader that what you choose to do meets the DofE’s requirements for this section and your level.
