Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are not running any face-to-face youth provision at this time. However, the good news is that JLGB Virtual is continuing every Monday - Thursday until the end of August. Watch now at www.jlgb.org/virtual


Adult Volunteers Needed to Support DofE Expeditions

JLGB’s Kosher Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has had a record number of sign-ups across the levels this year, meaning help is needed more than ever! If you are a parent, DofE volunteer, JLGB volunteer, past or current Gold Award participant then we need you. We are looking for volunteers every Monday from the end of April to July to help on our Bronze and Silver Practice and Assessed Expeditions.

Our Bronze practice expeditions have changed to be more in line with DofE Head Office's new guidelines. We will no longer be doing overnight practice expeditions but a one day intensive practical training in which our bronze participants will learn to put up tents and cook using their camping stoves, as well as completing a roughly 3 hour long walk with a member of DofE staff to ensure that they're prepared for their assessed expedition.

-          Checkpoint Supervisors

-          Driver Supervisors

-          Overnight Campers – particularly females required

-          Campsite Supervisors - 4pm onwards

-          Kit Distributors and Rucksack Packers

-          Kit Collectors/ Debriefers

If you enjoy camping, walking or youth work in general, then we need you, your experience and your expertise. Help young people reach their potential and see first-hand the benefit of the time and effort you will give.

If you are a parent of a current participant, you are very welcome to come out with us on the weekend of your child’s expedition and help with a different group. You will witness the benefits of DofE first-hand, while your child and their friends develop skills that go beyond the classroom as they work together and learn to be more independent. See them take a break from technology and experience the wonders of the great outdoors.

Please see below for all of this year’s expedition dates. If you are able to help us on any weekend please email dofe@jlgb.org.
