Your gateway to the forest, help us teach skills for life.

A Cub Scout section leader with Cubs.

We are looking for section leaders, assistant section leaders and sectional assistants to help with our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts at Ashurst and Colbury Scout group.

They work with our young people bringing smiles and skills every week as part of a team.

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls or an expert to help – being an expert in shoe laces, fist bumps or making tea is enough to make you a great volunteer. Plus, volunteering is good for you – it gives you skills and helps beat feelings of loneliness.

In particular, we need helpers for our Cub Scouts for 8-10.5 year olds on Monday evenings. There are also vacancies for:

  • Our 6-8 year old Beaver Scouts on Thursday evenings
  • Our 10-5-14 year old Scouts on Wednesday evenings
  • Executive committee members
Training and support

You’ll receive full training from the Scouts in what we need to do and the rules. The amount of training depends on the role but it is flexible and helps you in your role.

Plus there is a whole host of experience from within the group and district to help you make a difference. You will be supported to get started by our Training Advisors based in the district and our Group Scout Leader.

Time commitment

We’re looking for team players so whatever time you have is useful to us! From an hour a week to an hour a month, it is all makes the difference to our young people.

If you’re not sure if volunteering is for you we suggest trying it for four weeks – by the end, you’ll know what is involved and if it’s for you.
