Volunteering: It’s Good For You!
Volunteering’s not just about giving back – it goes both ways. It improves your wellbeing, gives you skills for the future, and helps you make new friends (and memories).
A fresh face and an extra pair of hands are always welcome with us!
All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to:
- Try something new
- Make friends
- Spend time with their children – or gain experience with young people
- Do something good for their community and themselves
- Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea
All end up making a huge difference to young people’s lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way.
But don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs.
Sonning Scout Group is currently very short of Leaders and so parents of all of the children in the Group are expected to help out with sections currently running a mandatory rota for all parents to help out at the weekly meetings. Specifically we require volunteers for the following positions:
- Unformed Leaders
- Non-uniformed Helpers
- Executive Committee members
