Volunteering At The 17th S.W Leeds Scout Group

Being a volunteer with the 17th S.W Scout Group can be very helpful and rewarding, 
in becoming a volunteer not only are you giving a few hours of your time to help your local Scout Group, but you are sharing some of your knowledge and skills to help our young people achieve progress.

There are different roles that adults can apply for.

An Occasional/Parent Helper.

An adult who doesn't have the time to be available each week, but is willing to work with our young people at the weekly section meetings.

An Executive Committee Member.
A volunteer willing to support the Group on the management side, which includes Fund Raising, Maintenance of our equipment, supporting the Group Scout Leader in recruiting new Leaders.

A Section Leader or Assistant Section Leader.
These people are the most necessary and important members of our Association.  
These Leaders agree to accept the Scout Promise and Laws and to complete a Leadership training course. Finally section leaders and assistant section leaders will need a DBS check to be carried out.

A Section Assistant.
An adult who is willing to work with our young people, accept the Scout Promise and Law, wear our uniform but possibly can't find the time to complete the training. They are however required to do some training.

Do your bit to help.
The rewards of being a volunteer are many, none more than feeling that you are helping our young people to achieve in Scouting also a chance for you to learn some of the skills in Scouting and the satisfaction of feeling that you are teaching the younger generation of today new skills and abilities.

Please remember you will need to be DBS cleared before you start as a occasional helper or leader
