Our Working Holidays will begin again in the Autumn!

YHA Working Holidays

Working holidays are a great way to meet new people, gain new skills and give your time to help YHA.  They are open to everyone aged 16 or over and you can come as an individual or with a group of friends.  This is our most flexible opportunity as there is no ongoing commitment.
The choice of where and when you go is entirely up to you!

We have a many different holidays on offer and these include gardening, decorating rooms, or giving a much- loved hostel a good old spring clean. With holidays in bustling cities, picturesque countryside and stunning coastal locations you can choose to support your favourite hostel!  Best of all during your free time you can visit the nearby attractions such as visiting a famous landmark or finding a bracing mountainside to refresh your spirits.

Any practical skills that you may have are welcomed with open arms – but you don’t need to be a DIY whiz to join in!  This volunteering opportunity can provide valuable CV enhancement to help with further education and employment applications or personal development.  Volunteers receive free accommodation on working holidays and we can  help with travel expenses.

Please note that if you need extra accommodation the night before or after the event you will need to book this as a guest through our Contact Centre on 0800 0191 700.
