WE NEED YOU

We're looking for 2 adults to join our friendly team of volunteers,

to help run our successful scout group.

Can you ensure our Beaver group keeps running?

Marie our Beaver Scout Leader (BSL) is retiring this July. We’re looking for a new adult volunteer to take over from her. Without a new Leader, our Beaver group will be at risk of closing. Can you help?

The role involves planning for, and overseeing a weekly Beavers meeting in term time, one 2-hour evening meeting per term with the Executive team, attending some online and in person training, plus some time on administration. You will be closely supported by the leaders in the Cubs and Scouts sections. If someone joins us now, Marie will be able to provide lots of handover support before she goes.

Less time available? Can you help ‘behind the scenes’?

We’re also looking for a Group Scout Leader (GSL). The GSL’s job is to work ‘behind the scenes’ with adult leaders of the Beavers, Cub and Scout groups, to make sure that the whole Group thrives and has the best systems in place to support our volunteers. It involves one 2-hour evening meeting per term with the Executive team, and another 3-4 hours per term in your own time on administration, training and communication with other adults in Scouting in the local area.

This role would suit someone who wants to help Scouting across all age ranges but can’t commit to a weekly role; has good organisational skills; and is comfortable working mainly with adult volunteers.

No previous experience with Scouting is needed for either of these roles, and lots of support and training is provided. If you have children or grandchildren of Scouting age (6+), then taking on one of these roles would guarantee them a place in the 1st Berkhamsted Scout Group.
