Volunteer With Us

All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to: 

  • Try something new
  • Make friends 
  • Spend time with their children – or gain experience supporting young people
  • Do something good for their community and themselves
  • Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea 

All end up making a huge difference to young people’s lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way.

Volunteering with young people

Team player? Love supporting young people? Great at planning? 

Most of our volunteers work directly with young people aged 6-18 through our Kea, Cub, Scout and Venturer groups, known as sections – helping young people gain skills for life through activities and adventures.

Working in teams, you might:

  • Welcome young people and families to sessions and events
  • Make sure everyone’s safe, supported, included and having fun 
  • Help to plan and lead activities
  • Get involved with days out, camps and expeditions 
  • Share and learn skills – from coding to cake decorating to canoeing 
  • Celebrate young people’s achievements big and small 

No previous experience with young people? No problem. Whether you’d like to help out week-after-week or whenever-you-can, we provide training, learning opportunities and cups of tea – every step of the way.

So how does it work?

  • Let us know your interested!
  • Attend an information evening and choose what you would like to do
  • Complete some training
  • Complete a Police Vet
  • Join a Group and give it a go
