Guerrilla Stakeholder Opportunities

Organisations and local authorities might not actively seek input from young people about the world around you. So, get involved anyway!

This page lists dozens of local and national opportunities where you can get involved by volunteering, sharing your views, or offering your expertise.

Some opportunities will not be suitable for under 16’s, but we encourage organisations to find ways to engage as many young people as possible. Please use the contact details in the job post to make enquiries if you are not sure of the age restrictions. Always stay safe!

VIEWS Add your views to consultations, surveys and questionnaires that will help to shape the decisions made around you.
VOLUNTEERING Join in with local volunteering initiatives to protect what’s already there, and to create what’s new.
EXPERTISE Offer your skills and expertise in social media, marketing, PR, recruitment or design to support initiatives and organisations that you believe in.

 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: these opportunities are provided as an ‘information only’ service. Built Environment Skills in Schools is not responsible for the quality or advice provided within these opportunities. Read the full Terms & Conditions here.
