Volunteer for DofE

You’ve had a great time doing your DofE and gained a huge amount. But this doesn’t have to be the end of your involvement with the charity. Here are some compelling reasons to volunteer for the DofE.

  1. You can keep your DofE journey going as an adult volunteer – the fun doesn’t have to stop.
  2. You’ve spent years learning some excellent skills. Keep those skills active.
  3. Pass on what you know to young people doing their DofE now – it’s your chance to give back.
  4. DofE voluntary roles are highly skilled and respected. Employers will value your additional efforts.
  5. If you’re considering doing an Outdoor Leadership qualification (e.g. the BEL, or ML), continuing to gain experience of expeditions with the DofE will be invaluable.
  6. If you’re thinking of going into teaching, youth work or coaching, a DofE leadership role is very useful experience to have.

There are all kinds of ways to stay involved with the DofE – you could become an Expedition Assessor, an Award Verifier, a Leader and so much more. Take a look at the full list of adult volunteering opportunities available here
