Scout Leader

  • VO67771


We are looking for 2-3 motivated volunteers who would enjoy working with young people (10 ½ - 14) to be leaders of our Scout Troop, planning and delivering the Scouting programme over the year. Primary task is to plan and deliver the "Scouting programme" (a mixture of games and activities that work towards the many badges Scouts can earn), alongside the other leaders in the team. This involves attendance at our Wednesday evening meetings (during term time only), etc.

Organisation aims and objectives

Provide fun and educational activities, outdoors where possible, for young people.










2-3 hours per week, for a minimum of one year and ideally 2-3 as it takes some time to get up to speed. A willingness to attend (and plan!) occasional weekend events, and participate in a summer camp would be useful.


Experience required: What we are looking for are volunteers who are up for a challenging but rewarding role helping to lead the Scout Troop. They should be proactive, willing to take the lead, and above all want to make a difference to the young people in the troop.
Travel details: Craigmillar Park Church Hall, Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh, EH16 5LZ
Minimum age: 18


Expenses paid: Yes
Expenses details: We don?t pay for travel / childcare / food, but any expense relating to equipment purchased for the job, or out of the ordinary expenses would be considered, along with transport to events outside the usual weekly meeting venue.
Taster available: Yes
Training details: Mixture of on-the-job and introductory training initially, followed by ongoing training working towards the ?Wood Badge? that Scout leaders should aspire to.
