We have 34 Scouts, aged 11 to 14, ready and waiting to help you with your community work or project. Ideally the work the Scouts carry out will not only help YOU but will help our Scouts to grow as people themselves. The work/project does not have to be of a size to involve all of our Scouts, it maybe you only need help from a small number of volunteers and the times we can be available to help can be flexible. Our two Scout troops meet on a Monday or Wednesday evening but we can also be available at weekends subject to Scouts and Leader availability.
Why are we offering our services?
Well, apart from wanting our Scouts to grow up as good citizens who take pride in themselves and their local community, by helping out on community projects the Scouts are earning elements of a valuable ‘World Challenge’ badge which is one of nine challenge badges which contribute towards the highest accolade a Scout can earn, the Chief Scouts Gold Award.
We can be creative and adaptable as to what help our Scouts can provide you with. Any help we provide will include the appropriate Leader/Adult to Scout ratio so you will not be expected to directly supervise the Scouts, just tell us what you need and watch us go!
If you think your community project could do with some Scoutpower, please get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange to have an informal chat to get the ball rolling.
