The backbone of the movement

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Explorer Scouting. We are always on the look out for people to help and there are lots of opportunities to get involved. If you are keen to help young people get the most out of life - and want to get the most out of life yourself then do drop us a line. There are lots of ways to get involved in the fun and join the adventure and family of Explorer Scouting.

Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we'll make sure you're properly trained and supported.

As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting also offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. A study found that over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives.
