Volunteering

Volunteers are essential to the Youth Adventure Trust and we are always looking to recruit new and enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to support our work. The dedication, hard work, energy and enthusiasm of our volunteers ensures that we can make a lasting difference to the lives of vulnerable young people.

Who volunteers?

Volunteers come from a whole range of backgrounds, ages and experience. Some have previously worked with young people or are interested in getting involved in this type of work; others have enjoyed camps, adventure trips and outdoor pursuits themselves and would like to continue this and help others enjoy it too. Some people are just interested in doing something valuable with their time and getting outdoors at the same time.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering can be challenging at times, but people are often surprised by just how much they personally benefit from the experience. For our Programme Volunteers there is a real sense of achievement in seeing a group of young people develop over the camp, and pride in knowing that they have given these vulnerable youngsters an invaluable experience. Volunteering is an excellent way to develop skills and experience. It is a chance to spend a week in the outdoors participating in a whole range of activities, and an opportunity for personal development. Most importantly, it’s a chance to make a real impact on the lives of vulnerable young people. For our Challenge Events Volunteers there is the opportunity to spend time in some beautiful locations across the UK, whilst helping to support those who are pushing their limits to raise essential funds for the charity.

Being a Youth Adventure Trust volunteer has been such a rewarding experience; meeting great people, doing all the activities and learning new skills. But the best bit has to be seeing the change in the young people that come to the camps. I feel it’s such an amazing opportunity for them, one that gives them life changing experiences that will stay with them forever.
