Volunteering with Scouting is easier than you think..!
Scouting is about everyday people working as leaders and supporters in Scout Groups in their communities, giving young people confidence, a sense of purpose, life values and outdoor skills that are hard to find anywhere else – we call this everyday adventure! Our volunteers put their skills to use and learn new ones, while giving something back to the local community.
Volunteering is easier than you think. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. People nowadays have busy, often unpredictable lives – meaning that they can’t commit set hours, on set days. Scouting is still scouting, whether you’re involved once a week, once or twice a month, every six weeks or even once a year; and whether you are in the thick of activities with a group of young people or working behind the scenes in a management, trustee or support role.
Everyone has something to offer as far as supporting Scouting is concerned, whatever your age or ability, and there are lots of ways to get involved. You don’t have to have any previous experience, or any specialist knowledge, just a passion to see children develop into confident young people.
Scouting has a huge variety of roles to suit everyone, for example, you could be great with engaging young people in activities and be ideal for a leadership role to being very organised and good with administration or be great with money and figures and be well suited to joining the group executive committee. We’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
Come and join in the Fun and Adventure, you never know, like us you might even enjoy yourselves!
