New volunteer roles for Lakes and South East hostels

New volunteer roles for Lakes and South East hostels

Next year YHA is launching a new initiative to inspire more people to support YHA in their local area and we are looking for at least two people to take on a new volunteer role of Support Group Coordinator.

Peter Gaines, YHA’s Vice-Chairman, is leading a sub-group of the Board of Trustees who are shaping the initiative. Peter said: “We need volunteers who can really take the lead in mobilising supporters in their area. They will help connect our hostels to the local community and inspire new people to contribute by joining YHA, raising vital funds or volunteering. It is hoped the Support Group Coordinators will also reach out to involve more young people with supporting YHA.”

Two areas that have been selected to trial the new roles are the Lake District and the South East.

The coordinators will be able to help shape volunteer opportunities in their patch by meeting with YHA staff and will help to improve the recognition of volunteers by capturing and sharing their stories. They will also invite supporters to regular supporter forums so they can meet, socialise and discuss ways to support YHA.

More information about this new role is available here or can be obtained by emailing [email protected]. All enquiries should be directed to [email protected]. The application deadline for the role is Sunday 21st December and informal interviews will take place in January 2015. We hope volunteers will be able to start in late January.
