2nd Cippenham Scout Group: Helping with 14-18 year old Explorer Scouts in Slough
Have you got a passion for adventure? Want to inspire young people? Then this is for you! Scouting is growing. Slough needs adults who are keen to try new things, have fun and help with our youth section for 14-18 year olds. We call this youth section Explorers and they are great young people who are friendly, fun to be with and eager to try new activities. We need adults to help us provide these fantastic opportunities to local young people. Our leaders are normal people just like you, but by working together they make extraordinary things happen! One week you may be rock climbing, the next doing a community service project, the week after taking the young people on a hike to test their navigation skills. What we can guarantee is that no two weeks are the same as the young people do different things each week to earn their badges and awards. We are open to boys and girls from all faiths, backgrounds and abilities and welcome everyone. Could you make a difference with this age range? Are you looking for a career in youth work or teaching? If so, volunteering with Explorers will certainly be rewarding and can also gain you lots of valuable experience. Are you wanting to spend time with like-minded people and do something more with your time? Again, volunteering with Explorers could be for you. What do you have to do? We meet Mondays and Wednesdays but you would only need to pick one of those options. Even then, if you cannot be there every week that is OK, we understand and welcome you when you can come! Be that weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Perhaps you could help us plan some of our fantastic activities or day trips instead. Whatever time you have to give we can find a role for you that you will find rewarding. We can offer you a free DBS check, free training, masses of career skills, and a great chance to improve your CV. There is also plenty of support. The most important part is that it is fun and incredibly rewarding.
