Volunteering with LIFEbeat

LIFEbeat offers unique, inspirational volunteering opportunity for individuals who want to step up and inspire the next generation. We provide full training and mentoring, no youth work experience is necessary… just the willingness to jump in, with a strong commitment to the wellbeing and positive potential of the young people!

Our programmes serve as a powerful training arena and we are increasingly seeing volunteers using LIFEbeat training and practice as professional development for youth workers, artists and teachers. Volunteers with LIFEbeat usually report feeling more inspired and empowered in their own lives.

Equal & Accessible Opportunities

One of  our primary goals is to breakdown the divisions in society and to create a camp community where all participants learn from others different to themselves. We are therefore committed to creating staff teams that are as diverse and inclusive as possible. We take age, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and background into account when building the volunteer staff teams for each camp.

In order to keep volunteer opportunities accessible, please enquire about discretionary fees to support the time taken to volunteer at our residentials.
