Scouting is all about helping young people build their skills, have fun, experience adventure and make friends and memories. We’re currently looking for volunteers to help lead our Tuesday Cub Scout Pack.
No experience of Scouting? No problem! You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to be a Scout Leader! We’ll provide all the training and support you need. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing flexible opportunities and support as part of a team of like-minded individuals. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer.
And volunteering goes both ways. There are big benefits for you too – boosting your self confidence, building on your skills, meeting people, contributing to your community, making friends, feeling great and having a laugh.
You can make a difference and ‘feel good’ at the same time! Like the sound of this? We look forward to explaining more about what’s involved! Please contact email@example.com .

This is a fun and supportive volunteering opportunity for 14 to 21 year olds who are interested in health and wellbeing. The Junction Youth Advisors (JYAs) meet as a group to talk about issues affecting young people's health and wellbeing in North-East Edinburgh. You'll make a real difference to The Junction by helping us to improve and promote our services. The JYAs are often asked to contribute their ideas to city-wide, national and international projects too. You can help try out our new services, create new resources like posters and videos, promote The Junction at events, take part in discussions and suggest your own ideas. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and build up your confidence in a safe and friendly group which values young people's rights and voices.
