Volunteer It Yourself (VIY)
At Volunteer It Yourself (VIY) we challenge young people to learn trade and employability skills through helping to fix local youth and community facilities in need of repairs.
Participants are mentored by professional tradespeople and gain vocational accreditations as well as access to further training, work placement and apprenticeship opportunities.
The majority of young people who take part and benefit are disengaged or excluded from mainstream education and training, at risk of disengagement, and/or unemployed.
VIY are asking for nominations from Community Centres and Youth Centres across Wales that are need of repairs such as carpentry, painting and decorating or simple brickwork. The centre must be near to a Wickes store
