At Scouts we celebrate difference and welcome everyone.
Whatever your background, identity or ability, there’s a volunteer spot with your name on it.
Volunteering can be a brilliant way to boost your mental wellbeing. It’s a great feeling knowing you’re helping young people get skills for life, and you might even learn a lot about yourself along the way.
Scouts can make you feel good in other ways too. We’ll guide you to an opportunity where you’ll:
- Make friends and meet people
- Try new things and challenge yourself
- Get outdoors and get stuck in
- Positively impact your community
- Create vital opportunities for young people
- Make memories that’ll last a lifetime
If you can only occasionally help, that’s OK. Whether you’d like to be an activity planner, tea-maker or craft creator, we appreciate any time you can spare.
If you need more, here are testimonials from our group:
Gill McDonald, Group Scout Leader
Why have I been Scouting for so many years? Quite simply, because it is an amazing adventure full of fun. Seeing our young people develop their confidence and life-skills, and gain so much from the experiences we offer, is immensely rewarding and I feel privileged to be part of the Scouting journey for both our young people and adult volunteers. Scouting is an opportunity to try new experiences, even as an adult, and to make new friends with similar interests.
Martin Cousins, Scout Section Assistant
Why do I volunteer? Volunteering in general can help give people a sense of purpose outside of their normal everyday lives. Being a scout leader is no different, but comes with a lot of perks. For young adults, it’s a really good CV booster and a chance to improve on their leadership skills. For an adult volunteer, it’s a chance to have some fun while in a constructing learning environment, teaching scouts life skills, survival skills and all sorts in-between.
Martyn Pope, Cub Pack Section Leader
I was a Springdale Scout in Broadstone when was I younger. Wanting to help the next generation get what I got out of it, I returned to the group aged 17 in 2015, this time as a leader with Broadstone Cubs. I’ve been with Broadstone Cubs 7 years now
I have learnt so much and have had so many amazing experiences. It’s very rewarding watching a young person learn to do something. But it’s also great camping under Swiss Mountains! Being a part of scouting is something I, and the leaders I work with, enjoy just as much as the young people do.
