Youth Volunteers – Janurary 2019

YOUTH VOLUNTEER APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN

Applications close Monday 19th November 2018

What:

Camp Hero Sports – WAROONA is a physically challenging 5 day sport and leadership camp. Students will receive facilitated workshops with personal trainers, a sports psychologist, a sports nutritionist and an exercise physiologist. Not to mention specialised training and mentorship from a variety of professional elite athletes.

We need a team of exceptional mentors to assist and support students who attend Camp Hero SPORT. You will need a passion for physical health and the desire to support young people to reach their potential. The promotion of positive mental health and wellbeing MUST also be a priority.

It is well known that physical and mental health are closely linked. Some evidence to support this is:

  • Physical activity is as effective as medication in treating mild to moderate depression
  • Playing sport or exercising 4 times per week reduces physiological stress by 47%
  • Physical activity is a protective barrier for mental illness
  • Mental health promotion forms part of all professional athlete training regimes

Where:

Karem Adventure Camp – Bullsbrook

When:

Camp will be held from Monday 28th January 2019 – Friday 1st February 2019. 

Transport:

Mentors and youth volunteers will be responsible for their own transport although zero2hero may be able to assist with car pooling arrangements etc.

What to Bring:

Upon acceptance, an information kit will be sent to you listing all the items you will need to pack for camp.

Safety:

We take safety extremely seriously. Risk and safety assessments are conducted prior to each activity.  Mentors and volunteers will act in accordance with zero2hero’s volunteer code of conduct at all times under the supervision of the zero2hero management team. There will be qualified first aid volunteers on-site for the duration of the camp.
