Offering young people in the District great Scouting experiences is only made possible by the volunteering contribution of the many adults in Scouting. There are many roles in Scouting and most of them don’t commit you to regularly weekly attendance on particular days but may involve as little as an evening or two per month ensure that the whole Group runs smoothly. Groups can advertise their most pressing vacancies on this page. Generally, they will be posted for four weeks from being posted and then removed, so people will know that the page is up to date.
NEW 10th Teddington
Working as part of a team of adult volunteers, adult leaders assist in the planning and delivery of an exciting programme of outdoor activities, community projects, games, challenges, learning about global issues, camps and even sometimes international trips!
This is a fun and rewarding role and is ideal for people that enjoy working with young people. Over time you will see our young members grow in confidence and ability as they learn from the programme you help run.
We know that life can be busy, so we’re all about flexibility: You really can give as much of your time as you choose on your terms! You may think that you have nothing to offer but you’d be surprised! Give us just one hour (in a way that suits you), and you can help us provide scouting to even more young people.
No previous experience of scouting is necessary. What’s more important is your own skills and experience as well as empathy with our mission and values. We provide a warm welcome, a sociable network, a relevant level of easy to access training and lots of online resources to help with the planning of activities as well as lots of ongoing face to face support.
Being part of scouting is great fun and it goes without saying that helping young people can be one of the most rewarding things you can do, plus it also looks great on your CV!
We have several roles in the new group. Have a chat with us about what you can offer. Contact keith.wincott@richmondscouts.
