YHA England and Wales has youth hostels in amazing locations in cities, towns, the countryside and by the sea. Youth hostels offer a place to stay, a warm and safe welcome, accessible and flexible accommodation, activities and education packages and best of all we are open to everyone, whatever age or where they are from.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to discover, explore and experience something new and what better way than through volunteering. Our mission is to reach out and enhance the lives of all young people, with the goal of reaching more than one million young people every year by 2020.
As a volunteer with YHA you will also contribute towards young people's experiences of the country's great landmarks and sites of interest, giving them life skills like travelling independently, team working and inspiring them to aim high in their own lives.
Is life a little boring? Fed up of the same old view out of the window? It’s definitely time to try something new!
We have residential placements available at some well-loved hostels. City, country or coastal, the choice is yours! Our hostel/student placements are perfect if you would like to gain hospitality experience, complete a work placement as part of your course of study or simply get away from home and lend a hand.
Hostel Placement volunteers assist the team of staff with tasks including serving meals, housekeeping and reception. Our friendly teams will give you a warm welcome and support you throughout your volunteering. You don't need any experience - just enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved!
Best of all, in your free time you can visit the local attractions or explore the countryside near the hostel.
Placements are for 2-8 weeks. Accommodation is provided and travel expenses up to £75.
You need to be aged 18 or over to apply for this role.
