First Give News
Insight to the First Give team, charity and any opportunities.
It’s International Volunteer Day so we wanted to share a blog about our recent team volunteering day at the Felix Project, written by Amal, one of our newest team members. Amal discusses the connections between our work at First Give and the values of today’s awareness day; the promotion of philanthropy and giving back to the community. Read below about how our First Give central team enjoyed engaging in community volunteering – a form of social action that we champion through the First Give programme!Learn more
The First Give social action programme inspires a whole secondary school year group to engage in social action. Not only does this youth social action have positive effects on the personal development of students, but it also creates a more cohesive community, linking schools with charities operating in their local area. We wanted to share some insights from Neil Davies, the Regional Fundraiser for South Wales at Shelter Cymru, a charity that is popular amongst many First Give students. Read below about Neil’s experience as a representative from a charity that First Give students chose to support during the programme and find out how to get the most out of the experience as a chosen class charity!Learn more
