Make a difference and improve your CV – Become a Scout Volunteer!
Scout volunteering gives you the chance to try different activities, visit new places, and learn and share skills, while making a positive difference to the lives of young people. From archery to canoeing, athletics to camping, crafting to hiking, young people get to try a wide range of activities, explore their talents and make the most out of life.
As a Scout volunteer, you must have the desire to work with young people and make a positive difference to their lives. In return, you’ll experience the fun and adventure with young people, learn new skills and give something back to your community. No experience required as full training is provided.
