Volunteering at Scouts is really flexible – it’s up to you what you do and how often
you do it. Here are some of the ways you can get involved.
 
Work directly with young people
 
If you’re a people-person who loves sharing knowledge and getting stuck in, there
are loads of opportunities to use your skills within the sections. Can you make a
great cuppa, drive a minibus, organise an event, or inspire a nervous young person
to try something new? Working with other volunteers, you’ll plan and deliver
challenging, relevant and rewarding activities for young people. If you’re happy
to help once a week but don’t have much time for planning, you can download a
pre-planned programme of activities from our website. Or if you’re a super busy
person but still want to be involved, you can join a Parent’s Rota or take part as an
occasional helper.
 
Make things happen behind the scenes
 
If you’re an organisational wizard who likes to get stuff done (but doesn’t fancy
running activities), we’ve lots of behind the scene tasks too. Our Executive
Committees help groups with raising money, arranging events, getting publicity,
recruiting young people and adults, maintaining buildings, and general admin.
We also have practical things that we’d love your help with, like cutting the grass
or painting a meeting place. All of this doesn’t involve direct contact with our young
people but is just as important to us.
 
Run our teams
 
If you’re a motivator who can get the best out of people, then we need someone
like you to manage and support our volunteer teams. We want to make sure they’re
happy, that they understand their role, and that they have what they need to
continue being amazing leaders. On joining the team, we’ll provide you with great
training opportunities, including an accredited course – always a nice addition to
anyone’s CV.
 
No matter what role you pick, you’ll be fully trained and supported along the
way. We care deeply about our volunteers, and want your time in Scouts to be as
valuable for you as it is for our young people.
