The Safety Centre, better known as Hazard Alley, is on the lookout for people to volunteer as tour guides. They need more people to take small groups of primary aged children coming on school visits through the 12 everyday scenarios in their interactive safety learning village.
WHAT IS HAZARD ALLEY?
‘Hazard Alley’ was the first purpose-built safety education centre in the UK, designed to give visitors a unique interactive learning experience. During a tour in our ‘life size’ village, young people encounter a range of ‘hazards’ giving them the opportunity to develop vital knowledge and strategies on how to stay safe.
WHAT DOES A VOLUNTEER TOUR GUIDE DO?
If you enjoy working with youngsters and want the satisfaction of teaching children invaluable life skills such as how to make 999 calls and put casualties into the recovery position as well as what to do in the event of a fire, how to cross the road safely, and ways to stay safer online, you will enjoy being a tour guide. They’re also a friendly bunch who enjoy buddying with new volunteers on tours and showing them how to lead a group.
You will be asked for a minimum of 4 hours a month and you can give your time regularly each week or flexibly to fit with other commitments.
You will receive full training and you don’t need to have experience of working with children to be able to become a guide.
You can get your travel expenses reimbursed and will receive a safety centre polo shirt and sweatshirt to wear when guiding, and organise social activities such as a summer outing.
