Joining Us: Adult Volunteers

Joining the group

About Volunteering

We do everything flexibly, so we’re all about shaping roles to fit the volunteer, but we do have some specific roles available too! 

There are sessions meeting every night of the week across our all of our age groups (Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, & Explorers) – there is always somewhere we can fit you in! (even if you cannot make it every week!)

It’s not just leaders we’re looking for, can you drive? are you great with Excel? Do you have time to help unload a trailer after a camp? full time, part time, any time, we may have a role for you.

One of our friendly volunteers is always about for a chat if you want to know more, or if you just want to hear about how to get stuck in – we can’t wait to hear from you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Skills do I need?

All you need to bring to Scouting is enthusiasm when you Volunteer! No previous experience is required and we will give you as much or as little support and training as you need.  Everyone has skills they can bring to the role often you just don’t realise it!

What if I don’t have that much spare time?

Don’t worry!  Outside of Scouts, some of our volunteers work shifts, some are in full time employment, some are part time.  This means some volunteer every week, others once a month others more occasionally.  Volunteering with us is easy and flexible, just get in touch with us to find out how!

What will I get out of Volunteering with Dringhouses Scouts?

As much as you want to get out of it! Scouts offers you the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. You get to do all this while having fun, making friends and changing the lives of young people for the better.

My child is in Scouting – is there anything I could do to help?

Absolutely, in fact many of our helpers are parents of our young people.

Are there any age or other restrictions on helping out?

As long as you’re over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer here. There is no upper age limit either!  Depending on the role we’ll need to get a DBS check done for you (but we sort that out) and we may require a couple of references.  Other than that there are no prerequisites.
