Volunteer to make a difference

Our network of dedicated and inspiring volunteers really make a difference to the young people we support. We are always looking to expand our network so, if you have any spare time, read on to see how you can get involved in supporting JET

Latest volunteer opportunities

Youth programme volunteers

Our youth programme volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds. Many have inspirational stories and experiences to share with our students connected to the worlds of aviation, engineering and science.

Our youth programme volunteers often work for the military or one of our corporate partners, and we also welcome active members of the local community. Our volunteers must pass stringent safeguarding and DBS checks prior to working with our students, and will be trained to support our Youth Liaison Officers to deliver face-to-face programmes in school and corporate settings.

If you feel that your background or career experiences would be inspiring and motivating to our students, and would like to enquire about volunteering with JET, please download the application form below.


Event and fundraising volunteers

There are a variety of volunteering opportunities to help raise funds and awareness of our work:

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS: Help us spread the word of the work carried out by the Jon Egging Trust. Please get in touch if you have public speaking skills and would be willing to speak on JET’s behalf in your local community.

HELPING AND REPRESENTING JET AT EVENTS: Members of the JET team attend events across the UK each year – from air shows to carnivals and fetes – to raise awareness of the work we do and raise essential funds to support our programmes. It is not possible to attend many of these events without the support of a loyal team of volunteers who help us to set up our stands, talk to supporters and help with the sale of merchandise.

COLLECTION BOX CO-ORDINATOR: JET’s collection boxes are placed in shops, pubs and hotels to help raise vital funds for JET. If you are able to travel, we would be thrilled if you could join our team to help coordinate existing boxes and scope-out new venues.


Military volunteers

Across the country, our military partners are integral to the work we do. Military personnel support young people on our Blue Skies and Inspirational Outreach programmes as well as volunteering on fundraising committees to support work in their local area.

If you are currently in the military and would like to volunteer, please download the application form below, or contact us for more information.
