Challenge Event Volunteers

Our fundraising events offer a bespoke opportunity to companies and the general public to challenge themselves, and in doing so improve the lives of vulnerable young people.  Our challenges, from climbing mountains to multi-discipline endurance events, raise essential funds for the charity.

We offer a range of events and are seeking volunteers to assist and support our teams.  This is a role for people comfortable and enthusiastic about spending long periods of time in the outdoors, helping teams to achieve remarkable challenges, and fulfilling their goal of raising funds to support the Youth Adventure Trust.

Challenge Event Volunteers are involved in a range of duties over a weekend which may include marshalling, cheering teams on, helping to resolve problems and celebrating the achievements of each and every participant.


No special skills are required however volunteers should be engaging, motivating and able to enthuse participants.  Our event volunteers are representing the charity and as such should be professional and comfortable in a range of outdoor environments.  Some navigational and outdoor skills would be beneficial but are not essential.

We accept applications from all over the country.  You will be required to arrange your own travel to the event; travel expenses will be covered where applicable.

Events typically require you to be available from Friday afternoon through to Sunday.

You need to be prepared for all weather conditions and bring along your own equipment such as waterproofs, suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.

Accommodation, breakfast and evening meals will be provided.  If the event requires camping you will be required to bring your own sleeping bag and roll mat, but tents will be provided.

18 years old minimum.

Challenge event volunteering is a great way to help the Trust.  The teams taking part are always appreciative of our encouragement.  It’s a great way to spend a weekend and I’d recommend it to anyone.
