Details of Role: 

The Youth Adventure Trust is a registered youth development charity working with vulnerable young people aged 11 to 16 years old from Wiltshire and Swindon.  Our programme provides young people with the chance to try new things and challenge themselves, experience success, learn to go beyond their expectations and grow in confidence.  They have the chance to take part in a range of activities, work in a team, experience group living and challenge themselves in a new environment.  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 up to 10 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.

With the support of the Youth Adventure Trust staff and other volunteers, you will help facilitate the young people’s learning and development by planning and delivering regular review sessions.
