Scouts SA is a fully voluntary organisation. The Leaders all have full daytime commitments like yourself. Other than the time at the meeting nights, they all spend many hours preparing for the various activities, keeping up with training requirements and many other activities behind the scenes.
The support given will depend on the individual circumstances of each family. Areas in which regular help is needed are:
Occasionally transporting the children to various activities included in our program.
Some activities are better and safer with an extra pair of hands, eyes and ears. If we call for a little extra help, it is good to know that there are parents willing to assist!
Most Leaders in Scouting are adults responsible for the delivery of the Youth Program. These Leaders undertake fun activities with young people, usually on a weekly basis. As a Leader of Youth, you work with your team to support young people learn new skills through the Scout method. This means that young people lead and the adults support.
Delivering the Youth Program can be very rewarding! Plus, Scouting gives you access to accredited training to support you on your journey.
Leaders of Youth told us what they enjoy about their experience:
Learn new skills, enjoy adventure, and meet new friends while making a difference to young people in your community.
Check it out. No experience required. It’s life-changing!
