Supporter Groups and Supporter Group Leaders

Supporter Groups

Getting involved in a YHA Supporter Group is a great way of meeting like-minded people, developing new skills and most importantly have fun!  Supporter Groups comprise of dedicated local volunteers who support a hostel through a yearly programme of events.  These include gardening, minor maintenance and community and fundraising events.

This is a flexible volunteering opportunity where you  choose which events or tasks you would like to support.  We can offer travel expenses of up to £15 per day and you should be within easy reach of the Supporter Group you would like to get involved with. A link to each hostel is available in the list below.

Supporter Group Leaders

We are looking for enthusiastic and engaging people to become Supporter Group Leaders. Leaders work closely with Hostel Managers to organise a programme of events to keep the hostel looking its very best and increase links with the local community.

If you can get the best out of people this could be the role for you.  The Leaders promote the group in the local community and encourage new volunteers to get involved.  They also coordinate attendance and support volunteers during the events.

This is a rewarding role for an organised person who enjoys meeting new people and networking in the local community.  We ask that Leaders are computer literate, have access to the internet at home, and are comfortable using their own computer for volunteering.

You will receive help with promoting their group including marketing materials and training in leading events.

Currently, we are looking for Supporter Group Leaders at the following hostels.  You can find our more by clicking on the guides.

If you have any questions please email the Volunteering Team  or call 01629 592562.
