Day Activity Volunteers needed

8th November 2019, 11:49am | By Dom Lattimer |

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. As part of the Youth Adventure Trust programme, running alongside the three camps there are single day activities which take place in Swindon or Wiltshire.

In between the Mountain and Coastal Camps we run some Activity Days in the October half term, February half term and Easter holidays. There’ll be things like art, set design and film production, animation, music technology, team challenge events or woodland adventures that the young people get to choose from.

These activities will all take place in Wiltshire and we’ll provide or organise transport to make sure you can get there, if you cannot make your own way there.

An annual training day takes place towards the end of January in Marlborough and we encourage all new volunteers to attend wherever possible.

Your role will be to support the young people, assist with their welfare and ensure they gain maximum benefit from their experience on these days. Previous experience of working with young people would be beneficial, but is not essential.

If you are interested in this volunteering opportunity please contact dom@youthadventuretrust.org.uk or call 07833182190
