How can you support our Group                                                                                          

Leaders are volunteers who donate around 3-4 hours of their time every week to the provision of fun programmes for our youth, we ask that you support us however you can.

The smooth running of programmes and the Group at large means we expect caregivers of all our youth to occasionally help out, to support fundraising efforts , help out occasionally to keep our facilities in good condition and or even better you can volunteer as a Leader, Parent Helper, Scout Associate or a Committee Member.

 

Any adult who intends to stay over at camps and sleepovers, provide transport, and regularly stay at weekly sessions are required to become a member of SCOUTS NZ by either becoming a Warranted Leader or a Police Vetted Adult Helper

 

Please talk to a leader about how you can join up via https://forms.scouts.nz/s/

WHAT YOU GET FROM VOLUNTEERING

Our Volunteers often tell us that they get far more back from giving a bit of their time and passion. Here are some of the ways you might benefit.

PERSONAL GROWTH

We offer three development pathways for our volunteers; youth development, adventure skills, and understanding scouting. We help you develop skills across these three areas so you can become a more effective leader for our young people.

IMPACT

Our volunteers have an impact on the young people they work with as well as their local community. Our volunteers donate over 1 Million hours of youth development on an annual basis. That is a significant positive impact on Aotearoa New Zealand.

COMMUNITY

We are an awesome community of 20,000 people who share a common set of values. Our volunteers join for the young people, and end up staying because of the wider scout community

VOICE

Through our leadership team structure our volunteers have a voice in how the organisation runs. This includes an opportunity to serve on the National Board or National Council. Your voice contributes to building a robust community based organisation.

NEW EXPERIENCES

Our volunteers get to participate in new experiences. From learning how to tramp safely, to abseiling for the first time, part of volunteering is participating with young people in the awesome experiences we run

RECOGNITION

We recognise our volunteers’ contribution in several ways. We have a long service recognition scheme. We also have awards for exceptional service at different levels of the organisation. Finally, we have formal awards for recognising best practice.
