Engaging Youth in Meaningful Volunteerism & Employment

Onboarding young people can be tricky at any time, but the world of COVID-19 has posed new challenges. We need to understand, develop and implement best practices for dealing with young people as volunteers and team members during the current climate.

Young people are a unique target group that deserves our attention. Engaging the next generation of nonprofit leaders shouldn’t be a guessing game. 

Join Jayme Archibald, Executive Director of Young London, and Angela Bambino, Community Outreach and Projects Assistant at Pillar Nonprofit Network, to learn more about meaningful engagement from a youth voice and a youth perspective. 


  • Best practices to consider including organizational readiness, and policies and procedures designed specifically for youth

  • Are there any additional supports, supplies or resources you need to consider? 

  • How to design meaningful opportunities 

  • Benefits to employers and the sector for engaging young people 

Anyone involved in and/or interested in engaging young people for employment or volunteer purposes including Volunteer Coordinators, Executive Directors, Senior Managers and/or board members. 

This webinar is being delivered in partnership with Young London. 
Young London exists to ensure that youth voices are heard and integrated into local public policy decisions. They believe that the optimism, idealism and passion of youth can be leveraged to change the way that London addresses the challenges facing the future of our City.
