Reading Voluntary Action are launching a new initiative titled RVA Youth. It aims to make volunteering accessible to more young people by helping to break down the barriers some face when getting involved.

At the start of the volunteering project, volunteers take part in a skills placement. Skills are rated on a scale of one to ten, and any skills they have set as 4 or below will be flagged as areas to improve so their mentor will be able to better help them with their personal growth. Participants then retake the skills placement once the project has ended to see how they have improved and where.
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 their RVA Youth supervisor. Journals are also present on this page, and are important for recording and reflecting on development. Volunteers receive an alert if they fall behind on updating their journals.
