Cub Leader - Bonnyrigg

  • VO89842


If you enjoy camping, climbing, hiking, other outdoor adventurous activities and much much more then please join our group and start a new adventure as a Cub Leader.
The Cub Scout Leader manages and leads the operation of the Cubs Section (8 – 10 1/2 yrs), in particular, the planning and delivery of the Balanced Programme, with the help of Assistant Section Leaders, Section Assistants and Young Leaders. The Cub Scout Leader will motivate, inspire and ensure that every young person has the opportunity to take part in fun, challenge and adventure. It’s so rewarding in so many ways.
Do you have a passion for getting outside and trying new things? Could you encourage and lead young people aged 8 to 10.5 years old to discover and learn through excitement, teamwork and adventure?

Working as part of a team of adult volunteers, a Cub Scout Leader assists in the planning and delivery of a safe and exciting programme of outdoor activities, community projects, games, challenges and the excitement of a few days away in a tent!

Helping young people to grow, gain confidence and achieve awards is extremely rewarding but you will also gain new skills too through our award winning training scheme that covers everything from first aid to dealing with challenging behavior.

You don’t need to have had previous experience of working alongside young people or have been a Scout yourself. Leaders need to be at least 18 years old, enthusiastic, and organised; we will teach you the rest and ensure that you get all the training, support and mentoring you need.

We know our volunteers lead busy lives, so we’re all about flexibility. Whatever time and skills you have available, we can find a great role for you.

14th Midlothian Scouts offers fun, friendship and life changing adventure to young people across the Bonnyrigg area. This is only made possible by talented teams of local volunteers like you.
