The volunteering structure is intended to facilitate clear lines of communication and support to enable leaders to organise more and better events, and to deepen and grow OutdoorLads' Membership:
- Each regional team is supported by Coordinator(s) who are first point of contact between organisers/their Leaders, Members, the office and the board. The role largely facilitates shared planning and communication between:
- Regional activity Organisers deliver coherent programs of local events throughout the year, by supporting their Leaders/teams. Where there is no specified volunteer Organiser, this is done by the Coordinator.
- Leaders are the ‘army of volunteers’ who deliver OutdoorLads events across the UK.
- Local Organisers are effectively ‘superleaders’ who volunteer to broaden OutdoorLads' activities and membership engagement in areas where regional teams need additional capacity.
