Volunteer With Young People

Team player? Love supporting young people? Great at planning? 

Each week, our volunteers help young people gain skills for life through activities and adventures.

Most of our volunteers work directly with young people aged 4 to 18 through our groups, known as Sections, which are:

  • Squirrels
  • Beavers
  • Cubs
  • Scouts
  • Explorers

Working in teams, they might:

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

No previous experience with young people? No problem.


Whether you'd like to help out week-after-week or whenever-you-can, we provide training, learning opportunities and cups of tea – every step of the way.
