When you think of Scouting, most people think of the kids - the Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers. They aren't the only ones to benefit from Scouting though.

Being a leader in Scouting offers many benefits to adults:

  • that warm and fuzzy feeling of knowing you are supporting families in your local community
  • the satisfaction of giving the youth members access to exciting and challenging experiences they otherwise may never have
  • personal and professional development opportunities through the free, accredited training provided by the Scouts Training Institute
  • expand your networks, both personal and professional, through meeting a diverse range of people
  • participate in exciting and challenging experiences yourself
  • become part of a worldwide movement dedicated to positive social development
  • have access to national and international travel opportunities
  • gain new skills
  • and for those of us with Scouting aged children, creating shared experiences with your children while you both experience Scouting together.

If you, or anyone you know, has been looking for a volunteering opportunity that is fun, challenging, and always changing then becoming a leader in Scouting might be just what you have been searching for. At 2nd Blackburn we are seeking adults (18yrs and over) to join our team at all levels - Joeys, Cubs, and Scouts.
