Volunteers play a vital role at Scouts SA, working alongside our youth members, staff, other volunteers and the global community to jointly achieve our goals. Through our Recognition and Rewards Program we highlight the contributions of our volunteers in various ways.
From April 2021, each month, the Chief’s office will select one Volunteer of the Month from those volunteers nominated, who have performed above and beyond in a specific instance/occasion in recent times.
Please congratulate our Volunteer of the Month recipients.

It’s easy to nominate a volunteer. Please email the name of the volunteer, along with a short summary of why the nominee would be a worthy recipient. Nominations can be forwarded anytime to the Chief Commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org who will acknowledge receipt of the nomination from the nominator.
Nominations close at midnight on the last day of each month.
If your nomination is not successful initially, please feel free to nominate that person again.
Any appointed Commissioner of the South Australian Branch may nominate any registered volunteer youth helper, adult helper, committee member or leader for the commendation of Volunteer of the Month.
Successful nominees will receive a “Volunteer of the Month” certificate, a thank you gift, their name entered on the Scouts SA website and an acknowledgment in a Scouts SA Update.
