Section Helpers

You don't need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer - we've already got one Chief Scout and he's brilliant! Nor do you have to be a scout or even an outdoors expert. You just need to be an enthusiastic all round team player.

Scouts is needed now more than ever. The pandemic has hit our young people hard – with two thirds saying it has impacted on their mental health. Having people positive role models to guide the way, and give that extra bit of encouragement is so important in times like these. We help young people step up, speak and find their place in the world. We help them gain skills for life.

As a section helper, you will assist section leaders with delivering a programme of activity to young people:

* Run games and activities as part of weekly section meetings and other section events.

* Assist young people to achieve badges and awards.

* Assist with residential experiences for the section.

Three great reasons to volunteer:

* You’ll share your skills and experience with young people, while developing yourself.

*You’ll have fun and meet new people in your area.

*You’ll inspire a generation (and they’ll never forget it)

What to expect:

A warm welcome. Flexibility to get involved in a way that works for you. Easy access to training and resources online. Plenty of support and a great team. Whether you join us to directly support young people, or behind the scenes, as a volunteer manager, treasurer or fundraiser, we’ll match you with a role that suits the skills you have to share and those you'd like to gain.

No two weeks are the same, but the impact you make is always great.


No specialised skills required but an enthusiasm to help young people develop their own skills and must be able to work as part of a team.
