There are currently about 90 Scout Groups across the South East of Scotland, many of which would love to have your help deliver the activities they run with children and young people! On an evening, you can expect the young people to participate in fun games and some sort of learning activity that will be teaching a new skill, helping them expand their horizons or generally contribute towards their development.

We are looking for adults to help support the running of evening activities for the following age groups:

  • 6-8 year olds (Beavers) – about an hour per week
  • 8-10 year olds (Cubs) – about 1-1½ hours per week
  • 10-14 year olds (Scouts) – about two hours per week
  • 14-18 year olds (Explorers) – about two hours per week

We also pride ourselves on being as flexible as possible, so if you don’t think you can come down for a weekday evening every week, but can help out less often then please let us know what you can manage.

Every volunteer role comes with an induction, some training and on-going support. As a result, you do not need any Scouting experience – just enthusiasm to help children and young people achieve their full potential.

This type of role will help you develop and evidence essential skills such as team working, taking initiative, creativity, planning, time management and many more. The most important part though, is that it’s fun and rewarding – both for you and the young people!
