Volunteers – 14 years upwards
From 14, Explorer Scouts can become Young Leaders. From 18 years anyone can help out from Occasional Helper through to Leader, from Executive Committee Member through to Scout Active Support, From Group level, through District to County.
The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.
Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting also offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. A study found that over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives.
Without Leaders Scouting cannot exist. Come and Join us.
