Volunteer It Yourself (VIY) combines volunteering and DIY by challenging young people aged 14-24 to learn trade skills by helping to fix local community buildings in need of improvement.

See how we’ve been transforming lives and communities since 2011 here >

Benefits for young people:

  • Learn new trade skills, mentored by professional tradespeople
  • Build confidence by meeting new people and making friends
  • City & Guilds Entry Level 3 accreditations, globally recognised qualifications that could help with employment opportunities in the future
  • Do something good/positive for their community
  • This is a free opportunity for young people and VIY can provide assistance with transport and lunch depending on the young person’s circumstances
