The excitement and satisfaction of mentoring, of transforming attitudes, and of helping young people open their eyes to the world of enterprise keeps many of our volunteers coming back year after year.

Becoming a Young Enterprise volunteer will challenge you and it will also help you develop a range of new skills and insights.

We have A Guide to Volunteering with Young Enterprise that provides an insight in what is involved and outlines the detail of what to expect.


Volunteer Roles:

There are a number of different ways in which you can contribute as a volunteer to our programmes and organisation:

  • Supporting the delivery of one of our Classroom-based Programmes in a school or college, generally a half-day or a day. Find out more
  • Acting as a Business Advisor supporting a student team on our Company-based Programmes which run through an academic year, generally by attending a weekly meeting with the team. Find out more
  • As a member of a Local Volunteer Board – which helps with the delivery of the Company Programme, working in partnership with our staff teams in a given area. Find out more

In addition to these specific roles, there are a number of other opportunities to make a contribution – for example, as a judge at one of our trade fairs or competition finals.

Many of our volunteers carry out more than one of the above roles in any given year, but you are free to choose the one(s) which best meet your needs, skills and availability.

All volunteers register with YE and certain roles require enhanced Safeguarding checks with the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).
