1st Newhall Scout Group

Adult Volunteers (Various Roles)

Volunteering can be a brilliant way to boost your mental wellbeing. It’s a great feeling knowing you’re helping young people get skills for life, and you might even learn a lot about yourself along the way.

Scouts can make you feel good in other ways too. We’ll guide you to an opportunity where you’ll:
- Make friends and meet people
- Try new things and challenge yourself
- Get outdoors and get stuck in
- Positively impact your community
- Create vital opportunities for young people
- Make memories that'll last a lifetime

If you can only occasionally help, that’s OK. Whether you’d like to be an activity planner, instructor with specific skills, tea-maker or craft creator, we appreciate any time you can spare.

We currently have a number of volunteering opportunities which include:
(1) Section Leader for Cubs (see role descriptions at
(2) Assistant Section Leaders (All Sections) (see role descriptions at
(3) Sectional Assistants (All Sections) (see role descriptions at
(4) Executive Committee Members (see the role descriptions at
