Hi, I just wanted to know what is this about and how am I aupposed to do it if I do it. I ve heard you gotta do volounteering, which I ve already done. I'd like some insight on the programme. I have half a year to do any of it, I ve heard something about gold being longer, so what do you recommend? Do universities take it into account?

It is very good and useful. I would recommend it. I did it through my guides( Girlguiding). But I am sure uni would take it into account!!!

Your whole post reeks of 'is it something I can do to get more CV points for a university application'. If this is the case, I strongly advise you not to proceed with it. Unis don't give a stuff about it - the only reason to do it is because you want to do it, and think you will enjoy the challenge.

Haha thx, but since Im enhancing voluntary work because I love helping people, specially stray dogs, and I want to get some work experience, as well as do some new stuff, I thought I might use this to my advantage.

Have you volunteered with the Dogs Trust or a local animal shelter? I'm guessing you probably have...

That's not how this works.

How old are you and where are you (roughly)?

It's a UK-based scheme, I don't think you can get involved.

There are literally millions of people doing it around the world in many countries. I know people here who are doing the "golden" one.

Don't do it; it has changed since it began and tends to be a 'tick-box' these says - universities aren't looking for it specifically. Choose your own volunteering; this is much more valuable.
