Programme ideas: Volunteering section

When completing each section of your DofE, you should develop a programme which is specific and relevant to you. This sheet gives you a list of programme ideas that you could do or you could use it as a starting point to create a Volunteering programme of your own!

For each idea, there is a useful document giving you guidance on how to do it, which you can find under the category finder on www.DofE.org/volunteering

It's your choice...

Volunteering gives you the chance to make a difference to people's lives and use your skills and experience to help your local community. You can use this opportunity to become involved in a project or with an organisation that you care about.

You can use the handy programme planner on the website to work with your Leader to plan your activity.
