ACTIVITIES VOLUNTEER (10 ½ -14 YEAR OLDS) - 1ST SOMERTON SCOUT GROUP
Would you like the chance to go camping, climbing, and lead community projects while helping prepare young people with skills for life? Then you could be the helping hand we need to support 1st Somerton scout group! We are looking for volunteers to join our team and support our scout section (ages 10½ - 14).
As part of a small team, you will help to plan and deliver a safe and exciting programme for young people, helping them achieve badges and awards, and those all-important skills for life.
You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer, and no previous scouting experience is necessary!
We’re making it easier for people to find out what Scouts is all about by running a four week challenge. It’s a chance to come along and see what we do before making any decisions. We don’t expect you to turn into a leader overnight: the four week challenge is all about getting involved in a way that works for you.
And volunteering’s a two-way street, its not only good for them, its good for you to! Research shows that it improves your wellbeing and helps you build career-boosting skills. Let us know you’re interested, and we’ll give you any support and training you need to let your skills shine.
We’d love to hear from you, contact us to find a role that will suit you!
Providing scouting adventures to the young people around us
What is Scouting?
Scouting is a remarkable movement, that brings amazing benefits and enjoyment to everyone involved – children, leaders, parents and volunteers who help with the running of the group.
Through adventure, we help our scouts develop team-work skills, friendships, confidence, independence, responsibility and a ‘can do’ attitude to help prepare them for the wider world and give them skills for life.
Everyone in our group takes part in many adventures and activities at weekly evening meetings, weekend activities in the term and week-long summer camps (for the older sections). In a typical year, we could go climbing, caving, hiking, canoeing, abseiling, kayaking, swimming, sailing, fire-lighting, community visits, craft activities, raft building and many many more adventures.
