Scouting’s quality depends on its volunteers and our volunteers depend on Scouting to teach them the skills they need.
Over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives, so we’re certainly doing something right.
A study of volunteers found that more than two thirds of respondents reported a direct correlation between their volunteer experience within Scouting and gaining employment or career development.
Training in Scouting has also enabled volunteers to gain accreditation for Open College Network awards in Youth Work, and helped them to become associate members of the Institute of Leadership and Management and the Institute for Training and Occupational Learning.
Occasional helpers are exactly how it sounds. If you could help only once a month, or less, you are still a vital part of the Scout Group and we would love to hear from you.
