Get Work Experience with the Scouts

If you’re interested in working with children, teaching or giving something back to the community, this might be for you. Cambridgeshire Scout groups are offering Work Experience for young people (16-25).

You don't need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer...  We’ve already got one Chief Scout, what we need now are smilers and inspirers, activity planners and Zoomers - all round team players to support our young people.

The good news is you shape what you do and decide how much time you give. Scouts happens when a lot of us give a little (and no, you don’t have to be a Scout or outdoors expert to volunteer).

Scouts is needed now more than ever. The pandemic has hit our young people hard – with two thirds saying is impacted on their mental health. Having people positive role models to guide the way, and give that extra bit of encouragement is so important in times like these. We help young people step up, speak and find their place in the world. We help them gain skills for life.

Three great reasons to volunteer:

• You’ll share your skills and experience with young people, while developing yourself

• You’ll have fun and meet new people in your area

• You’ll inspire a generation (and they’ll never forget it)

What to expect:

• A warm welcome

• Flexibility to get involved in a way that works for you

• Easy access to training and resources online

• Plenty of support and a great team

No two weeks are the same, but the impact you make is always great.

Skills you’ll develop might include:

• First Aid

• Project Management

• Interpersonal Skills

• Leadership Skills

• Planning Scout Sessions
