We are immensely grateful for the commitment and support of our volunteer community. As a small charity, we can only deliver our mission with the help of our amazing volunteers.

There are four types of volunteers who support us in our work:

  • Volunteer Facilitators: supporting us by facilitating sessions with young adults.
  • Volunteer Couples: supporting us by participating in our sessions with young adults, entering into an open dialogue with young adults about their experiences within their relationship. Our methodology uses marriage as an example case study for a long-term committed relationship however we do not promote any particular type of relationship or family structure, and accept applications for our volunteer couple positions from all types of married couples.
  • Trustees: our Board of Trustees is made up entirely of unpaid volunteers.
  • Ad Hoc Volunteer Support: such as pro bono professional support or volunteer support with social media, comms, and fundraising.

We value diversity in our volunteer community as we believe it is important for our volunteers to reflect the young adults that we are serving and that different backgrounds bring different perspectives which strengthen the work of charities.


Explore is a registered educational charity and our organisational values and culture are aligned to our Christian ethos. Applications are encouraged from individuals of all faiths and no faith. We expect our volunteers to share our values of compassion, kindness, treating others fairly, acting ethically at all times, and being respectful.


We very much welcome applications from individuals regardless of age, race, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion or background.
