What training do I need to complete to become a Surf Mentor?
After signing up to be a volunteer via our website, you will receive a link to take part in our online training. We ask all our volunteers, regardless of role, to complete this training. It will give you a background into the organisation, inform you on what we do, and how your support helps change the lives of our young people. During this training we also cover confidentiality and safeguarding.
If you are looking to volunteer with us in the water, you will be contacted by your local coordinator with dates of the local training, which will cover examples of the types of young people we work with, as well as practical training on how to support young people in the water; prepare to get yourself wet on this!
Depending on the role you want to support with, there will also be other training available including speaker training, events training, GDPR training for admin volunteers. Once you are a registered volunteer, please speak to your Project Coordinator for more information.
Anybody involved with the charity, including volunteers, must have a police check. The cost of this is covered by the charity.
