Scout Group Volunteer

  • VO97792


Volunteering for the Scouts is a great way to take part in new experiences, meet a whole load of friendly people and have fun. There is something for everyone whether you’d like to help out week-after-week or whenever-you-can, the Scouting Association will provide training, learning opportunities and cups of tea – every step of the way.

As a volunteer, working in teams, you might:

  1. Welcome young people and families to sessions and events
  2. Make sure everyone’s safe, supported, included and having fun
  3. Help to plan and lead activities
  4. Get involved with days out, camps and expeditions
  5. Share and learn skills – from coding to cake decorating to canoeing
  6. Celebrate young people’s achievements big and small

You don't need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer with Scouts - we need everyone to muck in and help support young people to learn #SkillsForLife.

Organisation aims and objectives

Clyde Scouts is one of eight geographical areas that supports Scout Groups and Districts in Scotland. Scouting provides adventure-based programmes for young people between the ages of 6 and 25 years old throughout the City of Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and North and South Lanarkshire. We believe that through adventure we challenge individuals so that they learn and experience new things that enrich their lives. Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
