Adult volunteer to help and lead activities for our Cub Pack as the Section Leader.

As a key part of the Leader team, plan and deliver an exciting, interesting and balanced programme to the boys and girls that gives them the opportunity to have fun and learn new skills while taking part in many different types of activities. These may include lots of adventures, challenges, trips, visits, visitors and possibly even the occasional weekend camp.

Providing ‘everyday adventure’ is what we do!

Volunteering looks great on your CV and a recent impact report told us that 80% of external organisations said that Scouting has benefited their organisation.

Volunteering is both fun and rewarding, allowing you to feel empowered and giving you a sense of pride.

Scouting aims to have a real and positive impact on the lives of our young people, our volunteers and our local community.

Adults volunteers must be aged 18 or older.

What skills do I need?

No experience is required.

Just a lot of enthusiasm, energy, good creative activity ideas and willingness to try anything is all that is required!!!

As Cub Scout Leader you will be the focal point of an existing team of experienced Assistant Leaders who will be on hand to support your development and ensure the packs continued success.
