‘Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.’
–Bear Grylls, Chief Scout
‘We’re on the look out for some new leaders to help with our Scout Troop,’ says Gemma Wallis, of Putnoe & Holy Cross Goldington Scouts, ‘If you are over 18 and want to have some fun while contributing to your community, I will be glad to hear from you.’
Adult Scout volunteers:
- help young people develop
- progress your career or education
- gain leadership skills
- take part in fun and exciting activities.
Working as part of a team of adult volunteers, the Scout Leader is responsible for ensuring the Scouts have a balanced programme of activities throughout the year; for managing the Scout Troop and its administration; and working in accordance with The Scout Association’s rules. Full guidance, with ongoing training and support is given to all leaders. The precise division of tasks between the Scout Leader, Assistant Scout Leader and Section Assistants helping run the Troop can be discussed and changed when necessary.
If you think that you have something to give to local Scouting, please give Gemma a call on 07505330637 or email her firstname.lastname@example.org.
