Adult volunteering

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting.

Adult supporting Scout crafts

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.

Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we'll make sure you're properly trained and supported.

As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting also offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. A study found that over 90% of Scouting volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives.

Many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members because they’ve seen firsthand how Scouting benefits young people and want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with your children and learn new skills. Speak to your child’s leader to discuss how you might become involved.

As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers.

If you'd like to help out in any way with the running of the 1st Hague Scout Group, please complete and submit the form below to provide us with the basic information we need to contact you to discuss how you can help and to determine which forms you'll require to start the the rigorous background checks we are required to conduct on all our adult volunteer.

Leader vacancies

Whilst there are no specific leader roles currently vacant, we are always looking for volunteers to help in all aspects of running the 1st Hague Scout Group. Just because there isn't a specific vacancy doesn't mean having, for example, an additional section leader wouldn't make a significant difference.

If you'd like to get involved, please complete the form below to start the process and we'll be in touch to discuss what role you'd like to take on and what sort of help would make a difference.
