The ACF is one of the country’s largest voluntary youth organisations. If you can give up one or two evenings a week and want to do something different with your free time, this could be exactly what you are looking for. You do not need a military background and we will provide all the training you require.
For most people taking part in volunteering projects is about 'giving something back', socialising and making new friends, or getting to know the local community. Others enjoy finding a worthwhile hobby that gives them quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle, or knowing they are making a difference to the lives of young people.
But as any one of our thousands of adults will tell you, it is watching the cadets grow and develop, and knowing that you have helped them along the way, which is the most rewarding part of being in the ACF.
Volunteers will gain new skills around youth issues. They will develop new relationships with young people and adults. Volunteers will have the opportunity to pass on their own skills, which will help them develop more self confidence and self esteem. Volunteers will feel valued as they are asked to participate in team building/celebration volunteers events. They will also become more employable and may gain access to higher education because of volunteering.
Volunteering with us is fun and flexible. Whether you help out once a week, fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play. If it's 1 hour a week or 168, there's a role for you.
As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting also offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership.
You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.
Many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members because they’ve seen first-hand how Scouting benefits young people and want to give something back.
