National Activity Centres Scotland volunteers

The role

National Activity Centres Scotland are looking for volunteers from all over the world who want to have fun, make friends and gain qualifications.

You could be doing anything from leading a kayaking session to checking-in guests, to running a game for 50 Scouts.

Based at either Scout Adventures Lochgolihead or Scout Adventures Meggernie, the view from your room could be anything from acres of beautiful woodland and mountains to lakes that stretch as far as the eye can see.

What to expect

  • Board and lodging
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Full training and support
  • Make new friends
  • Fun
  • Make a difference to young people

Can I apply?

Absolutely! You might be on a gap year, taking a break from the world of work, or just looking to flex your volunteering muscles and get some work experience – either way, we want to hear from you.

We don’t ask for specific qualifications or experience – we’re just looking for bags of energy and enthusiasm, a passion for creating safe and exciting experiences for our visitors and a willingness to be outdoors – whatever the weather!

When could I start?

A 9 month placement from 20 March for a placement until the 29 October

Or a 5 month placement from 31 May – 29 October.
