Volunteer

We have a very diverse team of volunteers, without whom Kibblestone would not be able to offer the wonderful experiences that it does to so many young people from all over the world.

To meet our mission of providing adventure and challenge to young people we rely on volunteers bringing their skills and energy to the team.

Through the fun and friendship of the team and the knowledge you are making a difference to young lives, volunteering is both rewarding and good for your wellbeing. So why not come and join us?

There is no single profile for the sort of volunteers on the team. Whatever is your “thing” I am sure we can find an outlet for it at Kibblestone. Sleeves rolled-up or a keyboard warrior. Using old talents or learning new skills. Weekends, weekdays, evenings or on our special volunteer days – anything you can offer will make a difference.

Here are some of the things we need:

Activities – from climbing to pond dipping, sports to crafts; volunteers ensure we deliver activities for young people that are fun, engaging, adventurous and safe. Whether you have skills already or would like to train in something new, pass your enthusiasm on to young people

Odd job Tuesdays – a bit of painting or hammering? Whether you are a master builder or just handy with a pair of secateurs, we have buildings and grounds a-plenty to keep smart, operational and safe

Site Operations – not always the most glamorous job but usually the most fun. Cleaning, tidying, preparing for the next inbound group of excited kids. Sleeves rolled up and whistle while you work!

Conservation – it’s not just about today. We want to keep providing for young people of the future. Sharing what we have with young minds. Caring for what we have. Planning for tomorrow.

Marketing – to survive as a charity we need the skills to attract people to use what we have to offer. We need to broaden our marketing skills – through research, product management, communications and customer management

Digital Media – engaging with young people, volunteers, sponsors, well-wishers, we need to grow our virtual presence and deliver content that keeps people aware and interested

Grants and Funding – we have no shareholders to turn to when we need investment. To develop and thrive we need to attract funding. An awareness of sources of funding, presenting our needs as attractive programmes and writing bids

Whatever you like doing or would like to try, there is an opportunity for you to do it at Kibblestone.

For fun, for satisfaction, for wellbeing, do yourself a favour and volunteer today.
