Scouting is the largest co-educational Youth Movement in the UK, with over 500,000 members and is growing faster than ever. Here at Dringhouses Scout Group we currently have over 200 youth members enjoying adventurous activities almost every day of the week. They are supported by a team of 30 adult volunteers from occasional helpers to qualified leaders and committee members.
We are looking for more adults to help with the growing demand for Scouting in Dringhouses; we have flexible volunteering opportunities available to suit everyone. For more information on flexible volunteering and how it can help you learn skills for life, please visit our volunteer page above or contact us for an informal chat.
If you are looking for more information about joining Dringhouses Scout Group, one of York and North Yorkshire’s largest Scout Groups, as a youth member please visit our join us page.
This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.
Do I really have the skills you need?
Yes! There is no previous experience required and we will give you as much or as little support and training as you need.
What if I don't have that much spare time?
That isn't a problem. Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible.
What will I get out of volunteering?
As much as you want to get out of it! Scouting offers you the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. You get to do all this while having fun, making friends and changing the lives of young people for the better.
My child is in Scouting – is there anything I could do to help?
Absolutely, In fact many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members.
Are there any age restrictions on helping out?
As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers.
