As part of National Student Volunteer Week, North Tyneside Citizens Advice Bureau had several students visit to gain work experience.
The volunteers were used to help with clients while they themselves were learning new skills and gaining confidence as they prepare for full-time working careers.
To mark the event the centre presented the student volunteers with a special celebration cake and thank you cards to show appreciation for the work they do looking after their clients.
The CAB said its volunteering work appeals to people of all ages and backgrounds who want the chance to do something worthwhile and rewarding in their spare time.
Anyone interested in joining the volunteering programme should call (0191) 270 4464.
