Most people think Scouting is all about young people – that’s mostly true, but adult volunteers are key to the running of Scouting. Without adult volunteers there would be no Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Explorers and none of the everyday adventure that our members enjoy!
Over 100,000 adults are regularly involved in the UK as members of the Association with about 200 adult volunteers in St. Helens alone. Whether you have a son or daughter involved in Scouting, or are simply interested in getting involved, we always have opportunities for more adults to volunteer in St. Helens, including our district vacancies. You can contribute to our Scouting community by volunteering as a helper, leader, instructor, trustee or as a member of an Active Support Unit. We can find a role to match your skills, interests and to suit the amount of spare time you wish to volunteer as part of the adult appointments process.
It doesn’t matter if you have never been involved in Scouting before as all our volunteers are provided with access to adult training to help equip you with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to exciting and safe Scouting. Further training can be accessed to help volunteers learn the skills to run residential Nights Away and Adventurous Activities experiences. There is also a wealth of Scouting and non-Scouting resources to draw on.
Our goal is to ensure our youth members get the maximum benefit from Scouting and realise their potential to become positive, active citizens. So if you think you have got what it takes to become a leader, or helper and want to know more, contact the District Commissioner, Chris Valentine, (contact details) without obligation or express your interest through the join us form.
