Youth volunteers group

Pie’s Action Community Thanet (ACT!) Youth Volunteer group is big on making a positive impact in the community.

They meet every week to plan and organise a range of projects and fundraising initiatives that will support local people, organisations, and charities that are doing good in the world.

The group works together to be the change they want to see and would love to welcome new people. By taking part, participants can gain access to volunteer opportunities and learn new skills, in a supportive, friendly, and inclusive environment.

From summer fun days for local families to litter picks, big sleepouts, and fitness challenges, they’ve raised money for a range of local charities including MPS Society, Thanet Shelter and Support Porchlight. Throughout the Covid19 pandemic, they produced and delivered care packages and cards to young people and care homes across Thanet.

Every project can support applications to college, university, and employment as a demonstration of the skills that have been learnt and volunteer experience.

Being presented with these opportunities will help me in later life and grow as a person…Everyone is lovely, especially if you’re new. ACT has taught me the value of time. Even the smallest bit of my time can really help other people… Pie means being myself and having my voice heard. I know that everything I say will be put into the project. It’s fun, light-hearted and a nice community.
