YHA Do It 4 Real VolunteeringMar 31st, 2010 • Category: Video and Slideshows
Every summer YHA hostels are over-run with teenagers for the annual DoIt4Real season – 6 weeks of camps across the UK. The holidays are open to young people aged between 10 and 19 in an array of different activities including everything from quad-biking, rock climbing and surfing to video-making, caving and abseiling. Each year YHA recruits an army of keen, energetic young people to volunteer at the camps to support the work of YHA staff. The volunteering team at YHA wanted to create a short video to help with their recruitment process, so they asked sounddelivery for help. We suggested giving some of the volunteers small cameras so they could capture what happens at camp and record short video-diaries about their experiences. This video is now being used by YHA at volunteering recruitment events and promoted online.
