The Scouts wouldn’t be the same without the thousands of adults who get involved each year.
Our volunteers are an active lot, do-ers, thinkers and changers. Thankfully, there are lots of different ways you can get involved. After all, hundreds of adults do each week in our district. 18 is just the start so take a peek below to see what is on offer:
Give something back: volunteer.
Anna is a scout. For her to learn skills for life she relies on lovely adult volunteers to show her the skills, to open up the HQ and make sure she has fun with her friends. She doesn’t know about the people who help her leaders do the best job they can do, or the trustees who keep the HQ safe or the parents who help fundraise so she can go on that next adventure.
Yet it’s thanks to volunteers such as these that allow Scouts to run every night of the week in our district. There are lots of roles that are flexible to fit around your working life and your skills.
To find out more about volunteering, and some of the roles available, see our Volunteer page.
Grow as a person: Scout Network.
If you’re aged between 18 and 25 then Scout Network could be just for you.
Any member of scouting of Network age is automatically part of the UK Scout Network. You can join nationwide projects and events with other people just like you. Life changing experiences, international gatherings and chances to make a difference.
As well as this, Pegasus Scout Network meet in the district for local Network members to meet, learn new skills, give back and achieve the top awards. Find out more about Scout Network on our page here.
Practical help: Scout Active Support.
Scout Active Support is all about using any skills to help others in Scouting or learning new ones.
These could be from fire-lighting to organising events, if it can help scouting then it’s welcome!
