Provide Education, an education recruitment company, is supporting Darton College with its Darton Voice project.
Pupils can get involved by doing things such as litter-picking or running coffee mornings for older people.
The firm recently presented the college with a cheque for £280 to provide badges for the project.
Senior education consultant, Darren Artley, whose son attends the college, said: “We fully support this project because it gives children a sense of pride and purpose. Barnsley is all about community and this is a great way of showing it.”
