If you’re looking to get work experience and want to help make the world a better place as well, volunteering could be right for you. This doesn’t need to be a regular commitment – you could volunteer at a one-off event or festival.
You’ll usually be paid expenses (for example, for travel and food) and this won’t affect your benefits. Volunteering is also a good way to make contacts for networking and future employment.
You can find out more and look for an opportunity that suits you on the Volunteer Scotland website.
