DofE Volunteering

We have lots of opportunities for you to get involved in changing the lives of young people for the better.

Volunteer with us DOFE Icon

If you're interested, please get in touch! There are a variety of roles in each DofE Centre - from equipment storesperson, helper on a day walk, or section assessor - there's something for everyone.

DofE Co-ordinators

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

DofE Leaders

Leaders are responsible for a DofE group. They lead, guide, inspire and encourage young people, agree their programme choices and approve their progress in eDofE.

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.


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.

Equipment Storesperson

Adults who can spare some time to help organise a DofE Centre's expedition kit store. You may give general support, i.e. sorting, making repairs, help book out equipment to groups, or show participants how to use it.
