Volunteering

Interested in becoming a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Volunteer? There are a range of different opportunities to get involved in within South Ayrshire depending on what skills you want to develop, and how much time you can commit.

Why Volunteer

As well as supporting young people to develop new skills, confidence and a greater appreciation of the environment and community around them, a DofE Leader builds their own skill set; gaining valuable leadership and management experience that can help professional development and career progression.

Roles

DofE Co-ordinators

Coordinators setup and manage the DofE in a centre. If you become a Co-ordinator, you’ll support your Leaders and oversee all groups.

DofE Assessors

Assessors check on a young person’s progress and agree the completion of a section of their programme. You’ll need knowledge of the activity they’re doing and approve their progress and pictures in eDofE.

In the Expedition section, qualifying expeditions must be assessed by a competent adult who is approved by the Licensed Organisation and accredited by the DofE through the Expedition Assessor Accreditation Scheme.

DofE Supervisors

Supervisors are people with a good understanding of a participant’s chosen activity. You’ll help them set their goals and regularly meet with the young person to check on their progress, address any potential issues and adjust goals.

A Supervisor is essential for the Expedition section as they are responsible for supervising and supporting a team of participants to ensure their safety and well-being whilst they are doing their expedition.

Volunteers/Helpers

Adults who can spare some time to help our DofE Leaders run a group can be a volunteer. You may give general support, i.e. admin, help run one section or give specific training.
