This volunteering role is available in the Tendring area only.
We have volunteering opportunities available on our committee and in our Cub and Beaver sections.
There are a variety of roles in Scouting to work with a range of different age groups, meaning that there is an opportunity for everyone to get involved, regardless of how much time you can commit:
• Section Leaders: Organise and lead the meetings. It sounds like a big job for students, but a number of our members are running sections in Bath and we have helped to put on some of the best events and activities in the district. It's a lot of work but has a lot of rewards, so is certainly worth considering!
• Assistant Section Leaders: This is the role most members pick. It provides the opportunity to run games and activities, but with less pressure than a full leader. An assistant leader attends (almost) every week to help with whatever the group is doing.
• Occasional Helpers: Don't want to commit to a weekly basis but to help? Occasional helpers still run games and activities, but less frequently. It could be anything from once a semester to a couple of times a month. This is perfect for the busy yet helpful student. It's also a great stepping stone for anybody not quite sure about Scouting!
