Welcome to YHA Volunteering!

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to discover, explore and experience something new and what better way than through volunteering.

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.

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.

Check out some great short films about us on YHA TV.
