Working with 8 to 10½-year olds as a member of our cub leadership team

Do you have a passion for getting outside and trying new things? Could you encourage and lead young people aged 8 to 11 years old to discover and learn through excitement, teamwork and adventure?

Working as part of a team of adult volunteers, cub scout leaders assist in the planning and delivery of an exciting programme of outdoor activities, games, crafts, exploring the outdoors, community projects, challenges and the excitement of a few days away in a tent!

This is a fun and rewarding role and is ideal for people that enjoy working with young people. Overtime you will see members grow in confidence and ability as they learn from the programme you help run.

We know that life can be busy, so we’re all about flexibility: You really can give as much of your time as you choose on your terms! Whether you can spare one hour a week, a month or a term, it’s far easier to provide exciting activities at our meetings if we have your support. You may think that you have nothing to offer but you’d be surprised! Give us just one hour (in a way that suits you), and you can help us provide scouting to even more young people.

No previous experience of scouting is necessary. What’s more important is your own skills and experience as well as empathy with our mission and values. We provide a warm welcome, a sociable network, a relevant level of easy to access training and lots of online resources to help with the planning of activities as well as lots of ongoing face to face support.

Being part of scouting is great fun and it goes without saying that helping young people can be one of the most rewarding things you can do, plus it also looks great on your CV!
