Childers scout leaders wanted
THE Childers Scouts are seeking extra volunteers to lend a hand to support the scouts program.
The Scouts in Childers came to life out of a public meeting held in 1952, providing the scout program in 1953 from a building constructed on the site, where HD Mechanical currently operates.
In 1963 the building was moved to the current location at the corner of Lord and Gaydon Streets, however scouting is currently under threat in Childers due to a lack of adult volunteers to take on leadership roles.
Scout leaders come from all walks of life, from parents of Scouts, to childhood Scouts, to people with no Scouting experience at all and Bob Edmiston is looking for new support.
“Leaders are the backbone of the scouts. If you are looking for an adventure and the chance to help young people build a solid and positive foundation for their futures, then you should become a leader.
Scouting is a worldwide movement that has shaped the development of youth and adults for more than 100 years
Leaders need to be motivated individuals with a commitment to providing varied, exciting and dynamic programs for their Scout group.
Scouts Australia helps leaders deliver on that commitment by providing training and support in all aspects of scouting, youth leadership, programming and safety.
Leader training is provided through the Scouts Australia Institute of Training, which is accredited to award nationally-recognised VET qualifications in leadership and management.
Normally, leaders need to commit to group meetings one night per week during school term, a monthly leaders’ meeting, and a few weekends a year for outdoor activities such as hiking and camping trips.
For further information, phone Bob on 0422 831 533.
