Student Adventure Leaders

Student Adventure Leaders

We’re looking for adventurous students who are looking for a challenge and wanting to help us in our fight to beat meningitis.

Globally, over 1,000 people die of meningitis every day. If you are currently studying at university, then this could be your chance to make a huge difference.

Meningitis Research Foundation is currently looking for Adventure Leaders within your campus. This is an amazing volunteering opportunity which allows you to develop essential skills for your future, undertake the trip of lifetime by climbing Kilimanjaro whilst also helping raise awareness of meningitis and the work the foundation does to combat the disease.

Being an Adventure Leader – what the role involves

  • Promote the Kilimanjaro Trek on campus to make students aware of the chance to take part in an incredible adventure for Meningitis Research Foundation.
  • Build your team; motivate interested students and friends to register on your team and join you in the adventure.
  • Inspire your team; support the team in their fundraising efforts as individuals and as a group, and with their training to get them ready for the adventure.
  • Lead on the Adventure: you will be the key link between your team and the adventure guides.

What skills and qualities do I need to succeed?

  • Connections; your social network goes beyond your flatmates and you’re a known quantity on campus!
  • Resourceful; you might not know all the answers, but you know where to go and who you need to ask for help.
  • Outgoing; striking up a conversation does not strike fear in you and you’re able to speak to a group of people you might not have met before.
  • Career focussed; the party has to end sometime and having an eye on developing your skills and a strong CV for your future career when you graduate is important to you.
  • A leader; instead of following someone else’s lead you’re leading the way and inspiring others to follow you.

What support will I be given?

  • Dedicated support from a member of the Meningitis Research Foundation team to help create a bespoke recruitment and fundraising plan for you as well as giving you lots of tips and advice to equip you for your new role.
  • Training; each Adventure Leader attends a training weekend to develop your professional skills, trip knowledge for the Kilimanjaro Trek and information about Meningitis Research Foundation.
  • You’ll have support from our dedicated Student fundraising team at Meningitis Research Foundation and Student Adventures who you will report into, and they’ll be there to help you every step of the way so you achieve your best results.

The benefits

  • A reduced fundraising target: The bigger and more successful your team, the more your fundraising target for your adventure drops. Get up to 80% off your fundraising target!
  • Chartered Institute of Marketing ‘CIM’ Development Award: the chance to gain a recognised industry qualification from the CIM.
  • Invites to networking and awards events with key graduate employers looking to recruit you for internships and grad roles.
  • Stand-out CV: Show your future employers you went to University and did something different. You had an impact and lead from the front.
  • Future opportunities at Meningitis Research Foundation.
  • The experience of a life-time taking part in the Kilimanjaro Trek!
