Role of Volunteers - IAYP

Our volunteers love creating a positive, supportive environment that’s bristling with energy for participants. They support the IAYP's overall mission and help run IAYP centres and groups, helping young people to achieve their full potential.

There are many different roles for our volunteers - have a look to see what they do:

IAYP Zonal Field Officers
These people set up and manage the IAYP in a centre. If you become a Co-ordinator, you'll support your Leaders and oversee all groups.

IAYP Leaders
Our Leaders are responsible for a IAYP group. You'll lead, guide, inspire and encourage young people, agree their programme choices and sign off Record Books.

IAYP Assessors
Assessors check on a young person's progress and agree the completion of a section of their programme. You'll need knowledge of the activity they're doing and you'll sign off their Record Book to confirm completion.

In the Expedition section, qualifying expeditions must be assessed by a competent adult who is approved by the Operating Authority and accredited by the IAYP through the Expedition Assessor Accreditation Scheme.

IAYP Supervisors
Supervisors are people with a good understanding of a participant's chosen activity. You'll help them set their goals and regularly meet with the young person to check on their progress, address any potential issues and adjust goals.

A Supervisor is essential for the Expedition section as they are responsible for supervising and supporting a team of participants to ensure their safety and well-being whilst they are doing their expedition.

Adults who can spare some time to help our IAYP Leaders run a group can be a volunteer. You may give general support, i.e. admin, help run one section or give specific training.

Whilst not all volunteers will be involved in the detailed running of programmes everyone needs to ensure continuity throughout, share responsibilities and maintain the overall quality of the IAYP experience.

If you'd love to make a positive impact on young people, then we want to hear from you! Get in touch with your local Operating Authority today!
