Programme Volunteers

5th January 2022, 12:35pm | By Becky Brown |

The Youth Adventure Trust is a youth development charity providing a programme of outdoor and adventurous activities for vulnerable young people from Wiltshire and Swindon. As a volunteer you will be supporting young people aged 11 to 16 years old, helping them face challenges and build resilience, experience success, learn to go beyond their expectations and grow in confidence. The programme is built around three residential adventure camps and a series of day activities based locally in Wiltshire.

As a Programme Volunteer you will work with groups of young people alongside other volunteers, trained members of staff and activity instructors. You will have the opportunity to take part in the activities with the young people, ensuring that they get the most out of their time on our programme.

You will ensure the welfare and organisation of the young people, help them to get involved and overcome issues, encourage and support their social relationships and help guide your team to work together.

Volunteer training takes place in February and June and we encourage all new volunteers to attend wherever possible.
