Hull Youth Council

Hull Youth Council is a citywide project supporting young people aged 11 - 25 raising their issues, ideas and campaigns.



Volunteen is a project run by ERVAS.  It aims to help young people aged 11 to 25 in the East Riding of Yorkshire to increase life skills, by introducing them to new and enjoyable social activities.



VYPER is a scheme which allows young people to collect certificates of recognition for all the volunteering that they are taking part in.

To be able to be awarded certificates, we ask that volunteering hours are recorded in a VYPER log book. The VYPER project is currently open to young people aged 10 to 25.
