Advertise your voluntary opportunities via GMYN

April 5, 2012 Leave a comment

Are you looking to recruit young volunteers in Greater Manchester? Greater Manchester Youth Network will advertise your opportunities for free. We will post them onto our Facebook page and our website, plus pass on the information directly to the young people we work with. As well as working with individuals who are interested in volunteering, we regularly have teams of young people who are available for one-off volunteering activities, such as clean-up days, fundraising events, conservation work, etc. so get in touch if you could benefit from the help of one of these teams.

If you’d like to advertise an opportunity via GMYN send the details in an email to and we will send you an organisation registration form.

We’re celebrating our fifth birthday today!

In five years Greater Manchester Youth Network has worked with well over 7000 young people, supported most of them to carry out some sort of social action, helped hundreds of organisations by linking them with young volunteers and built some really positive relationships. We hope to continue working, in partnership with others, for another five years and more.

We’d like to thank everyone who has, and continues to, support us – we can’t do it without you!
