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.
