Assistant Cub Leaders Friday Evening

12 February 2018

Cubs meets on Friday at 7pm and we are looking for adults to help on a regular basis as part of our team of leaders. Our leaders work flexibly together, so if you can’t be there every week that’s ok, we understand and welcome you when you can come. You need to enjoy working with children and have a good sense of humour. You need to have common sense and be open to learn and have new experiences

Cub Scouts (8-10.5 yrs) are full of fun and enjoy an adventure. They can try outdoor activities, have the chance to be creative, explore their local community and take part in residential trips. Their weekly programme of activities is all about inspiring enthusiasm and having fun. Our volunteer leadership team are the ones that work together to plan and deliver these activities, some bring skills with them when they join; others develop their skills while working with us. Our leaders are normal people just like you, but by working together they make extraordinary things happen! One week you might be leading a walk in local woodland, the next building bird boxes for a community project, the week after singing silly songs round a campfire and toasting marshmallows or practicing first aid skills with fake wounds. What we can guarantee is that no 2 weeks are the same as the children do different things each week to earn their badges and awards. If you are keen to try new things, have fun and give our Cub Scouts new challenges then why not join our team of adults. Full training and support is given to all our volunteers to make sure our Cub Scouts are given exciting opportunities that they will remember for years to come.

Our young people meet on the same evening each week during term time, so new volunteers would commit to attending on a regular basis. We support flexible volunteering around shifts and other commitments, so this doesn’t have to mean a weekly commitment. The Scout Association is a voluntary organisation, and you will not be paid for your role. However, no adult should feel that cost prohibits them from taking up a role in Scouting, and we are committed to reimbursing out of pocket expenses for all volunteers.
