Adult Volunteers (18+)

Adult Volunteers

The Scouting movement is a volunteer lead and run organisation. In Surrey alone we have 3,500 adult volunteers. Quite often these volunteers are cover several roles in Scouting, whilst working and raising a family.

Most of the leaders, executive and helpers at the 18th are all parents of children that are either currently attending the group or have in the past. We have always been very lucky with the level of help and support we receive from our parents, so long may that continue.

There are so many different elements that make up the group, which means there are so many kinds of jobs that need doing. That’s what makes it so fun and exciting. Here is a list of the kinds of roles, jobs and tasks that we always need help with.

  • Section Leaders – Uniformed Role with fantastic support and training – DBS required URGENTLY NEEDED
  • Section Assistants/Occasional Helper – Assisting the section, helping on trips and camps – Non-uniformed role – DBS required.
  • Fundraising/Event Organisers – Non- Uniformed – DBS required – Urgently Needed
  • Quartermaster – Someone to take inventory our stock and keep our stores tidy
  • Do you have an interesting job??? If so perhaps you could come along and tell our young people all about it.
  • Have you got a skill or trade you can share?? Perhaps you’re a carpenter, electrician or mechanic. If so, perhaps you could come along and show our young people the basics.
  • Parent Committee Members – join our executive and help shape our group and give your opinions.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
