    Our volunteering programs are definitely structured to ensure maximum impact and facilitate learning but they do allow for a significant deal of flexibility by enabling the co-curation of the volunteering experience with the candidates themselves.

    CRY UK will induct you into the program and ensure that you have a detailed understanding of the organisation as well as your role as a volunteer. You will receive guidance from us whenever you have a doubt or need help on your plan of action. You will also receive regular feedback on your progress and will be mentored to build your leadership skills.
