We’re now recruiting for volunteers for Summer and Winter Weeks!

Summer and Winter Weeks

Summer and Winter Weeks

Summer and Winter Weeks volunteering helps to support our staff teams with hostel tasks to give our guests an enjoyable and memorable stay.

You will undertake a variety of tasks including welcoming guests, catering and housekeeping. You may also get involved in practical tasks like decorating and gardening, to help keep our hostels in top notch condition.

This volunteering opportunity can be a great way of gaining valuable work experience and meeting new people whilst exploring a new location in your free time.


  • Suitable for people who are new to YHA and those who have been involved in volunteering for some time
  • You must be reliable, capable and willing to carry out various tasks at the hostel
  • You must be at least 16 years old

Our website and systems are changing

We are delighted to share the news with you that very soon we will be making some big changes to our website and systems.  As a result you will be able to browse all the Summer and Winter Weeks opportunities by hostel and by date and apply for them directly online.

As a result of this we will not be coordinating any further placements until the website goes live in the middle of May.  Please do check this web page for further details or email volunteers@yha.org.uk if you would like us to inform you of the go live date.

Available across England & Wales
