In­cred­i­ble work of Scout­ing vol­un­teers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

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.
