Volunteering with Scouts

Try new things, meet new people and make a difference today

All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to:

 

  • Try something new
  • Make friends
  • Spend time with their children – or gain experience with young people
  • Do something good for their community and themselves
  • Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea

All end up making a huge difference to young people’s lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way.

Full training and support will be given in all roles.
