VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES

SHARE THIS ON

We now have several exciting volunteering opportunities available. And there is something in here for everyone. Please contact Annette programmes@hini.org.uk if you have any questions or if you are interested in getting involved.

Belfast Walking Tours
You love interacting with international young people and chatting about this gorgeous city? Then you would be perfect to lead a walking tour. We have a political and historical walking tour running on the weekends but we would really love to extend and broaden what we offer to our guests. Got an idea for a brand new walking tour? Coffee walk? Craft Beer tour? Bike sight-seeing? Let me know!
Time commitment: 2-3 hours, 1-2 times a month
Place: Belfast

Belfast Hostel Events
Our Belfast Hostel is packed with international travellers. We want to offer them some fun activities in the evenings where they can meet other hostel guests and spend a good time together. Got an idea already? Game nights? Cooking party? Concerts? Let me know!
Time commitment: 2-3 hours, 1-2 times a month
Place: Belfast

Outdoor Education
Part of our work is to organise programmes that get young people out and about into the wild. So we partnered with Gaisce – The President Award and John Muir Trust. For both these programmes we need outdoorsy volunteers who have some experience in working with children and young people. A plus would also be if you lived close to the venues or if you were familiar with the natural sites of the North Coast of Northern Ireland.
Time commitment: 1-2 days, mostly weekends
Place: Bushmills, Whitepark Bay (expenses paid)

Youth Work
Our objective is to support and advance the informal education of young people in the communities around our hostels. We work closely with local community leaders, then design and lead out programmes with children and youth that support their personal and skill development. We are looking for volunteers who have some experience in working with children and young people.
Time commitment: varies between a few hours and full weekends
Place: Bushmills, Whitepark Bay (expenses paid)

Summer Camp
In summer 2018 (probably July/August) we are looking to run a weeklong Summer Camp for teens. A week packed with fun outdoors, games, crafts, songs and campfires. This will be an excellent opportunity for all those who are looking to further develop their leadership skills with young people. We are especially looking for international volunteers.
Time commitment: 1 week in summer 2018, plus 2-3 days training before camp
Place: Whitepark Bay (camp), Belfast (training)
