Get Involved With Godstone Scout Group
Volunteering for Scouting is one of the most fun, rewarding and positive things you can ever do. You can give as much or as little time as you like. We will match opportunities that fit your skills and time available. If you would like to have fun and make friends, earn professional qualifications and make a real difference to the lives of young people; please contact us.
Whatever your skills, experience and interests, we can find a role for you!
Scouting is growing in popularity, with increasing numbers of boys and girls joining the adventure.
But because the demand from young people far outstrips the numbers of adult volunteers we have available to help; thousands of young people across the country are still on waiting lists to join.
We need your help to allow more young people to experience the challenge and adventure of scouting.
What can Scouting do for me?
Our adult volunteers get just as much fun from scouting as young people. As well as helping young people to enjoy the adventure of scouting, you also get the opportunity to try a whole range of different activities and new experiences.
We can also help you develop your current skills and learn new ones. Volunteering in Scouting can enhance your CV or simply allow you to pursue your interest in a specific hobby.
You don’t need to have previous experience in Scouting, just energy and enthusiasm. All of our adult volunteers receive full induction and ongoing training and support.
How can I help Scouting?
There are many ways in which you can give your time to help Scouting whatever your gender, age, abilities and skills. Most of our volunteers have full-time jobs and help out on a flexible basis, around their other commitments.
Whether you can spare two hours a week or one day a month, we need volunteers to help young people experience the challenge and adventure of Scouting.
Simply let us know your availability and how much your would like to help and we will match this to roles within our group.
