Project Brief

RVA Youth is a new initiative aiming to get people aged 16–24 involved in local volunteering

The new initiative aims to make volunteering accessible to more young people by helping to break down the barriers some face to getting involved.

RVA Youth will offer time-based volunteering projects lasting between 10–40 hours to contribute towards a defined outcome. Both volunteers and organisations will benefit from the scheme. Volunteers will gain transferable skills and will be supported by mentors. Organisations will benefit from the insights and enthusiasm younger volunteers can bring. The brand aims to be appealing to both groups and the website makes it easier for supervisors, organisations and the volunteers to track progress and keep communication open throughout the project.

Skills Placement

The skills placement helps mentors assess where volunteers require the most help.

The plotting of skills is taken place before the volunteer starts their volunteering project. They rate skills such as team work on a scale of 1–10. Skills with a rating of 4 or under will automatically be flagged so mentors can find projects for the volunteer that help them in areas they need help. They are also able to select skills they want to gain even if they are rated higher than 4 out of 10. At the end of the project they carry out the skills placement again to help them see where they have gained confidence.

Project Log

The project log screen outlines your current project to help keep things running smoothly.

On this page, the user has access to information such as contact details, badges earned and amount of hours tracked. They can also communicate with the mentor from the organisation and the RVA supervisor. Journals are also present on this page, and are important for recording and reflecting on development. Volunteers are recommended by RVA to keep their journals up to date, and will receive an alert if they fall behind.
