Volunteer Leader with Beavers

Volunteer to help Scouting and help your community

Put your skills to use, learn new ones and play an active role in your local community.

Scouting in Hitchin is run completely by volunteers to ensure that young people can enjoy as much fun and adventure as possible. However we still have many young people on waiting lists who want to join Scouting, but can’t because we don’t have enough volunteers to allow all the extra young people to join.

We don’t just need people to volunteer to help run weekly meetings. There are also plenty of support roles working behind the scenes. You could help with maintenance, assist with finances or record keeping, help with a badge of specific activity, provide training support or serve in our Scout Shop.

When you volunteer with us, you can give as much or as little time as you want, whether that's committing an hour or two to a weekly meeting, undertaking administration at home at a time which suits you, or attending on an occasional basis as time commitments allow.

There is a whole range of different volunteering opportunities available to you through Scouting. For example:

Leaders to work with young people at weekly meetings
Young Leaders (aged 14-18) to support our young people and volunteers at regular meetings
Managers to lead and support teams of adults to deliver Scouting
Trustees to make sure property and resources are properly administered
Instructors to run a huge range of adventurous activities
Media and communications people to promote Scouting and improve our communication
Administrators to maintain finances, records and ensure policies and procedures are followed correctly
Training Managers to co-ordinate our comprehensive adult training programme

Volunteering is easier than you think. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis.

Give young people the skills they need to succeed in life and discover how being part of the Scouting family can be as rewarding for you as it is for them.

You just need to believe in a more positive future and the difference we can make together.

Volunteer today and help us prepare more young people with Skills for Life.
