  • Adult Volunteers | Wimbledon and Wandle

    Adult Volunteers… ​ What do volunteers do? This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship. ​ Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life. ​ You can do this in various ways: By becoming an occasional helper which allows you a flexible way of providing your support. By becoming a leader and being a part of our weekly meetings in a more structured way and giving the other leaders additional support in numbers allowing for illness and other commitments which at times make it difficult for leaders to attend meetings. By becoming a member of our executive team and assist with the administrative side of running the Group. This could be as Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary or looking at opportunities for Fundraising. You can also volunteer to help with the admin for a particular section, taking the pressure off the leaders. Attend a meeting and demonstrate a skill. This could be anything from or anything else that is interesting, educational and introduces different experiences to our young people, craft, mechanical, circus, woodworking Help us with maintaining our gear and hut and improving our facilities. If you are interested in any of these opportunities and would like to know more, please don’t hesitate to We are more than happy to explain in more detail! contact us. ​ Got a question? ​ 1. Do I really have the skills you need? You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways. ​ 2. What if I don't have that much spare time? Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we'll make sure you're properly trained and supported. ​ 3. What will I get out of volunteering? As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting also offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. A study found that over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives. ​ 4. My child is in Scouting – is there anything I could do to help? The short answer is yes. Many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members because they’ve seen firsthand how Scouting benefits young people and want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with your children and learn new skills. Speak to your child’s leader to discuss how you might become involved. ​ 5. Are there any age restrictions on helping out? As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers. If you are aged between 14 to 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader. Find Out More Send Thanks! Message sent.
