SA1While the focus of The Salvation Army will be on volunteers between 18 – 25 the Millennium Volunteers certification awards are recognised for UCAS applications and readily acknowledged on CV’s for those entering the job market place.

Speaking to Newry Times, Major John Parrott of The Salvation Army in Newry said, “The Salvation Army as a Christian Church has always valued and recognised the great work done by its volunteers. I am really excited and delighted to now be in a position to let others know of the contribution and skill development of young people.

“We have recently been able to offer support and encouragement to two of our previous members, who recently left the area to take up further education at Queens University Belfast and Cardiff University in Wales,” he added.
