How you can support YHA

How you can support YHA

The YHA has been a charity for over 80 years. We aim to help everyone, especially young people of limited means, to enjoy opportunities to travel for the benefit of their health, recreation and education.

Everyone can stay at an YHA. And by choosing to stay with us you fund our work. Every penny we raise through fundraising, donations and selling affordable accommodation goes straight back into our YHA network.


1 day tester - there are events cross England and Wales to meet people and give volunteering a go.

Regular volunteering - get active in your local area and get to know your closest hostel.

Experience volunteering - explore a new area and immerse yourself in the hostelling experience. 

What you'll gain:

  • Get outdoors and active
  • Meet new people
  • Gain new skills
  • Share your experience
