Loud & Proud
Loud & Proud is GVA’s volunteering group for young people aged 16-25, who help others and the community through volunteering, while building confidence and skills themselves. The group members carry out activities to raise awareness and money for charities, and are always on the lookout for new challenges.
Aim and Philosophy
Loud & Proud’s aim is to raise awareness of the diversity among people in our society and the wide range of issues that affect them, whether they relate to disability, mental health, confidence or culture, and to show that there is a role for everyone.
The group’s philosophy is that no matter what the circumstances of a young person’s life, we are all valuable. Loud & Proud want to work for the greater good and to show that we are all human and equal. “We may be young, we may be loud, but we’re in it together to make you proud.”
Loud & Proud facilitate volunteering and training for young people. They also participate in a wide range of community volunteering events that are great for improving your CV and are also a lot of fun, including fundraising for local projects, raising awareness for good causes, organising and holding charity events, helping with afternoon teas at sheltered accommodation, working with local schools, and much more!
In February 2021, Loud & Proud celebrated their 10th anniversary! You can find out what being part of the group means to the members by reading their special newsletter, created in honour of the occasion.
