Bored this summer? Think about volunteering

For young people looking to volunteer on a gap style project but without ebough money to fund themselves should take a look at Platform 2

Platform 2 is a fantastic opportunity for 18-25 year olds from low income families to go on a free 10 week trip to a developing country to work on community led projects. It is Government funded and run by Christian Aid in collaboration with BUNAC and Islamic Relief.

Here is a video involving young people who've already responded to the scheme.

If you would like more information please check out their website on which includes the application form, stories from volunteers on the trips at the moment and more.
