Share your skills, gain new ones

All of our leaders here in the 35th Nottingham (Kingswood) Scout Group are volunteers, with this brings lots of different skills, but also means the programme relies on them being free. 

To ensure we have enough adults to run as many exciting nights as we can, we would like to see if anyone wants to join us in any of the sections as a one of the following:

Assistant Leader

Assistant Leaders support the Section Leader in delivering the Balanced Programme. This can mean anything from helping to plan and run games or activities, or helping to keep records up to date. The responsibilities of an Assistant Leader will depend on their own interests and on what they agree with the Leader.

Section Assistant

All our sections need helpers. Outdoor activities and nights away require a certain number of adults in relation to the number of young people. So by helping out whenever they can, section Assistants could be enabling an extra 6 (in the case of Beavers) or 12 (in the case of Scouts) young people to participate in Scouting. More importantly, section Assistants provide invaluable support to Leaders and Assistant Leaders.

Most important thing to note is that no previous Scouting experience is required, most of us didn’t have any!
If you are not 100% sure, Scouts recommend a try-before-you-buy 4 week scheme. 

Week 1: Come and see what we do

Week 2: Help out

Week 3: Get a bit more involved

Week 4: Decide if Scouts is for you

If this sound like something you would like to do, or if you know someone who might like to join us please get in touch with any of the Leaders or email graeme.nicoll@nottingham-scouts.org.uk
