The Feel Good Factor

It’s very rewarding helping young people to face new challenges and learn to overcome them. Seeing them grow in confidence will put a smile on your face. As a Scouting volunteer you’ll get plenty out of it too. You’ll:

  • Enjoy new experiences
  • Try different activities
  • Visit new places
  • Learn and share skills
  • Meet new people
  • Have the chance to gain externally recognized qualifications
  • Trekking across the hills 
  • Supporting young people, as they see new things and do things they’ve never done before 

The role of a Scout volunteer is also good for your CV, as it suggests that you’re someone who joins in, takes the lead, is supportive and can build successful relationships. All of these qualities are prized and sought after by employers.

Improve your Career Opportunities

As a volunteer, you’ll develop skills that will be useful in your life and work. You’ll get so much out of working with young people, such as:

  • Improving your leadership and teamwork skills
  • Learning to support and manage
  • Discovering hidden talents like fundraising, media relations and event management
  • Developing administrative skills as a Scouting Secretary or Treasurer
  • Getting active and outdoors and having lots of fun too!

There’s nothing like the buzz of adventure, exploring possibilities and doing surprising new things with the young people in Keswick Area.
