Volunteer Roles

All volunteers must be at least 14 years old (may vary depending on activity). Whether you have no experience or have volunteered in the past, we welcome all volunteers who are enthusiastic.  If you are interested in any of the below volunteering opportunities then please contact Dan Carter our Head of Youth Activities at dan.carter@thatchamyouth.org.uk.
