None of the work we do with young people would be possible without the enthusiasm, energy and support of our volunteers. 

We work with over 2,500 volunteers from all over the UK, both on shore and at sea, throughout the year. Our aim is to grow this incredible network to help with anything from fundraising to recruiting young people. 

If you would like more information on how you can get involved, please contact our Volunteer Admin Assistant, Kathryn at [email protected]

Each area has a Facebook group - run by the Volunteer Area Leader - for volunteers locally to connect and share ideas. Please use the links below to join your local group. Alternatively, if you don't have Facebook and would like to connect with your local Area Volunteer Leader, please email Kathryn using the address above and she will put you in touch.

 "The young people are the future, and the Trust gives them a good grounding to work with. All charities need volunteers, and I can’t think of a better one to take young people forward." Jane, Tall Ships Volunteer
