Become an Adult Volunteer.
It is easier than you think and Good For You!

Volunteering’s not just about giving back – it goes both ways. It improves your wellbeing, gives you skills for the future, and helps you make new friends (and memories).

All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to:

  • Try something new
  • Make friends
  • Spend time with their children – or gain experience with young people
  • Do something good for their community and themselves
  • Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea

All end up making a huge difference to young people’s lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way.

Come and join in the Fun and Adventure, you never know, like us you might even enjoy yourselves!


Yes. You don’t have to be like Bear Grylls to get involved. We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways. Training is provided. All you really need is enthusiasm.

Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible.  Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.

Yes, absolutely. You can try it out for a few weeks. After that we are sure you will be enjoying it as much as we do, but if it is not for you that is not a problem.

If you’re over 18 you can help out as an adult volunteer. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers.

If you are aged between 14 to 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader.
