Volunteering The most valuable commodity that anybody can give a Scout Group is time, and we always need more volunteers. Perhaps you’d like to be a Leader, administrator or skills instructor?
Why volunteer? Some people do it to add to their CV, others do it to give something back to the community. It is an exciting challenge and most importantly of all, it is fun. These kids can be hilarious, and working with them is very rewarding. So…could you help? * None of our Leaders is paid – they are all volunteers (free uniform and expenses covered). * The majority of our Leaders have full time jobs and a family. * We have lots of female Leaders, including both Beaver Leaders. * Leaders get involved because they want to have fun, learn new skills and make new friends.
How can you help? Volunteering is very flexible, from four hours a week to an hour every few months. There are many ways you can help, here are just a few: *Section Leader *Assistant Leader *Sectional Assistant *Occasional Helper *Fundraising Group *Executive Committee Member
We currently have vacancies for a Scout Leader, and, from September, a Cub Leader.
Leaders don’t have to be ‘superheroes’ who know everything. They are given training on the job and learn new skills as they go along. The one thing that unites our Leaders is the energy and enthusiasm they have for giving young people the adventure of Scouting
