Volunteering with Adventure Centre for Education
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Ghandi
Volunteering is an excellent way to gain valuable experience in working with people and outdoors and looks great on your CV to any future employer.
We are extremely lucky at the Adventure Centre for Education to have an amazing team of trainees and Outdoor Activity Instructors and we are constantly looking to expand our volunteer base.
Our volunteers should be passionate about the outdoors and enjoy working with young people.
We offer our volunteers training and support with NGB (National Governing Body Award) Qualifications when and where appropriate, additional training in supplementary areas necessary to deliver outdoor activities to young people e.g. Health and Safety, Leading Skills, Working with Young People, Child Protection and First Aid in addition to opportunities to gain valuable experience working with groups, assisting and leading when appropriate and continued professional development beyond the programme, support and supervision once groups are up and running.
We prefer that our volunteers have experience in outdoor activities however we provide training for non-experienced people who are looking for a chance to volunteer. At the Adventure Centre for Education we cherish people who are enthusiastic about working out of doors.
Ideally, volunteers should also have experience in working with young people.
For each day attending a training course we ask for one day in return, either assisting or leading a group.
