VICTA is excited to be bringing the only international camp for students with a vision impairment to the UK. The International Camp on Communication and Computers (ICC) unites young people (16-22) from over 15 countries, providing a unique learning opportunity for everyone involved. VICTA will host this ten-day residential camp in July at the Royal National College for the Blind, Hereford. Participants choose from a rich variety of workshops and activities ranging from IT to cooking to presentations skills to blind football.
We are looking for volunteers to help us deliver this unique camp.
On a typical day, ICC volunteers will be needed from early morning to the evening guiding participants around the campus at mealtimes, attending workshops to supporting evening leisure and sporting activities. There is also an excursion day, where all 150 people will leave the RNC campus for a day in the Brecon Beacons hiking, abseiling, canoeing and socialising.
Volunteering at ICC will require commitment and enthusiasm but it will be as rewarding as it is demanding. You will have an opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends and strengthen your CV.
Examples of volunteer roles include:
• Lead Volunteer – assigned to a country group (approximate group size 5-8 people)
• Minibus Drivers – transporting to/from Hereford train station
• Airport Support – greeting participants and helping ensure they make the appropriate travel connections to Hereford
• General Guide and Supporter – offering support round the campus, attending workshops, supporting evening leisure activities
Volunteers in the past have also run workshops at ICC and if you have a skill or interest that you feel could be part of a workshop, we would happily discuss this with you.
There will be an ICC volunteer training day at RNC on Saturday 1st June.
While the camp will be delivered in English other languages may be useful. If you would like to join our volunteer team or have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
