Glasgow 2018 organisers are currently in the process of recruiting 3,000 volunteers to be the welcoming face of Glasgow 2018. Volunteer roles include Spectator Services, Media Operations, Events & Hospitality, Sports Services and much more.
Engage Renfrewshire were delighted to present a group of Syrian young people with Saltire Challenge Awards for their volunteering with the Environmental Training Team over the summer months.
The awards were presented by the Leader of Renfrewshire Council, Councillor Mark Macmillan. Also in attendance were Provost Anne Hall and Peter Mcleod, the Leader of Renfrewshire’s Children’s Services.
All five volunteers: Ayman Ahmad, Ahmad Ahmad, Issa Ahmad, Moataqem Andoura and Ebrahim Andora came to Scotland from Syria a year ago.
Ayman, Ahmad, Issa, Moataqem and Ebrahim all plan to continue volunteering, as they enjoy giving back to their local community and hope to achieve the next stage of Saltire Awards in the future!
East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action (EDVA) have released a video featuring young volunteers describing their volunteering stories. You can watch the video below!
