We’re aware that there are lots of demands on people’s time, energy and wellbeing at the moment, and we’re so grateful to each of the 160,000 volunteers who give up their time each week to change the lives of the young people they lead.
You can see from the video below, just what a difference it makes.
If you’re considering joining us, here are a few extra reasons why there’s never been a better time to volunteer at Scouts.
We bring people together, even when they’re apart
Across divided communities, we help young people gain shared experiences and provide them with a safe place where they can learn from people of different backgrounds, promoting a mutual understanding of one another, and building meaningful friendships which often last a lifetime.
We create happy, resilient citizens who are better equipped to handle whatever life throws at them
In a time of great uncertainty, we help young people develop the values, self-confidence, and belief in others which will help them go on to become confident, active citizens. We offer children and teens a place to belong, where they can develop the skills to succeed, and feel optimistic about the future.
We help communities engage with each other, at home and away
Where there’s a lack of community engagement, Scouts gives young people the opportunity to improve the lives of those around them, taking positive social action in their local, national and international communities.
We improve social mobility in a time of increased anxiety and competition
In this age of economic instability, Scouts helps young people develop skills for life; the character, practical and employability skills that young people will carry with them into adulthood, and put their best foot forward, every step of the way.
Do I really have the skills you need?
The short answer is yes!
As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers. If you are aged between 14 to 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader. Please email Rebecca Bowman firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
