About this opportunity from Essex County Scouts

Young Leaders are 14 to 17 year old volunteers, they also become youth members to the organisation so have the chance to experience Scouting first hand if they choose to. Young Leaders assist the Section Leaders and Assistant Section Leaders in delivering the programme to young people in Scouting.

What client groups will volunteers be working with?

Young people, Assistant Leaders, Section Assistants, other Section Leaders within the Group, and Group Scout Leader primarily.

There are three youth Sections the Volunteer can choose to work with:

* Beaver Scouts: 6-8 years old

* Cub Scouts: 8-10 and a half years old

* Scouts : 10 and a half-14 years old

Various locations throughout the County in every District, therefore this will be discussed once we receive an interest from the volunteer.

Most volunteering is done in the evenings and weekends. Generally a Scout Section will meet one evening a week. Any day trips, or camps are in addition to this and arranged by the Section Leaders. Volunteering is flexible and programmes are planned jointly so if you are unable to commit to every week or certain events this should not be a barrier.
