Adult volunteers


If you care about future generations, if you want to contribute, to learn about yourself and other people, and want to have fun doing it, then we want you to join us as a Leader!

Young people need the guidance of informed, caring adults to develop their self-reliance, initiative and responsibility.

The worldwide Scout Movement offers this guidance through our Leaders, a team of dedicated, self-motivated individuals who volunteer their time to contribute to the development of youth.

Make a contribution to your community

Leaders care not only about the young people under their guidance, but also about the community in which they live.

As an Adult Leader you will be actively involved in planning and implementing projects to help your local community and in expanding the community awareness of the young people in your group.

You’ll encourage a sense of responsibility and goodwill by participating in activities, and you’ll be helping to develop future generations.

How can I be involved?

We need all kind of Volunteers in Scouting. Some of the roles available are:

  • Leaders of Youth such as Joey Scout, Cub Scout and other Section Leaders deliver the Youth Program. To see what section or age group might suit you, click on each of the sections in the left hand menu to find out more.
