Bryson celebrate and recognise Volunteers during Volunteer Week
Volunteers’ Week is a special time of year, giving us extra reason to recognise and celebrate volunteering.
Bryson has had a long history in volunteering and many of the projects that started in Bryson in the early days needed volunteers to make them happen.
The main areas of volunteering in Bryson today involve our European Volunteers and our many Board Members for each Group Company. Over the last 20 years we have supported over 300 young people to be involved in the programme, either by facilitating hosting placements in and around Belfast or by sending young people from Northern Ireland to other countries. This year we have 17 volunteers from 9 countries including Finland, Hungary, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Czech and Poland. They are volunteering in a range of organisations including Bryson, Ulster Wildlife, Women’s Aid, Now Group and Crescent Arts Centre.
To celebrate all our Volunteers we are having a get together and lunch on Monday 5th June.
