Volunteering at Scouts is changing to help us reach more young people - Discover what this means

Open Volunteer Spots: 4

If you’ve ever led a small team in work, or organised a community event, or even planned a family holiday, you’ll have the skills to help support the leaders who put on activities for the young people.

In Scout Lingo:

Group Scout Leader

Main functions:

  • Support the leaders in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout sections of the Group
  • Ensure all young people are kept safe and that all Leaders are aware of their safety responsibilities
  • Help with recruitment of new volunteer leaders and supporters
  • Ensure all adults have appropriate training and disclosure
  • Work with the Group Chair to ensure the Group has an effective Executive Committee
  • Be a member of the Group board of trustees
  • Planning for the future

What we need from you

We’d need you to complete a DBS check and do some basic training within 5 months of you starting. Then there is some more training to do which will cover other parts of the role, but this takes prior knowledge and experience into account, and if you do need support it can be done on the job – and even better, you have 3 whole years to do this if you need it!

What you’ll get out of it

We’re not going to lie – this is quite an involved role. But the reward is seeing potentially over a hundred young people filing through your Scout hut doors every week to take part in some incredible activities. It’s also being there for the Activity Runners, Activity Helpers, Programme Planners, Money Collectors and Stuff Getters who all make up the incredible team of volunteers that is a Scout Group, and them being there for you. You get a sense of belonging, and a sense of achievement.
