Incredible work of Scouting volunteers
This is Volunteers’ Week: The Big Celebration and what better time to recognise the incredible work of our Kent Scouting volunteers?
Today Scouting provides fun and adventure to almost 16,900 young people in Kent. We build confidence, self-esteem and help girls and boys, young men and women aged 6-25 develop the skills and values they need to succeed in life.
But what does volunteering really mean? It’s about finding an organisation whose values align with your own.
It’s about finding a cause you feel passionately about and which allows you to grow as a person. It’s about using your skills and learning new ones.
For our 3,974 volunteers, Scouting provides these opportunities. In Scouting, adults as well as young people make new friends, try new things and develop skills that they use in their everyday lives.
Volunteering for Scouting is flexible and fits around work and volunteer commitments. We work especially hard to find roles that are matched to a person’s interests and talents.
