We are always looking for additional people to join our team and help us change the lives of young people. Volunteering is #GoodForYou as well - good for developing skills, making friends and generally good for your health and happiness too!
In particular, we are looking for the following:
Section Assistant Leaders
As a Section Assistant, you can take part in many amazing experiences with young people including camping, climbing and water sports as well as many practical activities and running games using your current skills and learning new ones.
We are looking for enthusiastic, caring people to help out at the weekly meetings in one of our sections - Beavers (aged 6-8), Cubs (aged 8 - 10.5) or Scouts (aged 10.5 - 14) to help plan and run the section meetings together with the other leaders.
Enthusiasm, empathy with young people and a sense of humour are required. But we can teach you the rest. We'll support you all of the way and ensure that you get the training and support that you need.
You can volunteer in various other ways too:
By becoming an occasional helper which allows you a flexible way of providing your support.
By becoming a member of our executive team and assisting with the administrative side of running the Group. This could be as Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary or looking at opportunities for Fundraising.
You can also volunteer to help with the admin for a particular section, taking the pressure off the leaders.
Attend a meeting and demonstrate a skill. This could be anything from or anything else that is interesting, educational and introduces a different experience to our young people: craft, mechanical, circus, woodworking
Help us with maintaining our equipment and headquarters and improving our facilities.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities and would like to know more, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are more than happy to explain in more detail!
