v, The National Young Volunteers’ Service, is committed to supporting young people to be at the forefront of strong communities, encouraging them to be socially and economically active.

In Autumn 2010, v commissioned the Institute for Employment Studies to explore the unique contribution of volunteering to the development of employability skills and attributes, networks and contacts, qualifications and accreditation, and the relief of the negative consequences of unemployment or inactivity.
