Virtual Walks Presenter

Volunteer Davy Major taking photographs as SleddaleDo you enjoy walking? Photography? Meeting new people? Presenting to an audience?

If you have answered yes to all of the above then this is the opportunity for you! One volunteer started this project in 2018 by going into care homes and presenting walks to residents. Often the walks are inspired by the audience and their personal memories of the area allowing them to enjoy the beauty of the National Park through a screen even though they can no longer experience the walks physically. We now have two volunteers who present to various care homes and organisations via Zoom.

As the project gains in popularity we are in need of more presenters. As a Virtual Walks volunteer you will be required to map out walks, walk your route taking photos along the way and then use PowerPoint to create a presentation in line with our brand to present to an audience. You will need to be confident with technology, including Zoom, image and sound manipulation, use of Office applications (specifically PowerPoint) and a confident and adaptable presenter. Virtual Walks will continue via Zoom for the time being and you will have the opportunity to present in care homes when Covid-19 restrictions allow. Please note that a DBS check will be required for this role.
