Working with young people

Team player? Love supporting young people? Great at planning? 


Most of our volunteers work directly with young people aged 6-18 through our Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer groups, known as sections – helping young people gain skills for life through activities and adventures.


Working in teams, they might:

  • Welcome young people and families to sessions and events
  • Make sure everyone's safe, supported, included and having fun 
  • Help to plan and lead activities
  • Get involved with days out, camps and expeditions 
  • Share and learn skills – from coding to cake decorating to canoeing 
  • Celebrate young people's achievements big and small

Right now, we're looking for people to become Leaders and Assistants:



People who work as a team to run the section - to plan, organise and deliver amazing programmes and activities for young people. You’ll be prepared to invest that time and also complete full training for the role - called the Wood Badge.


Vacancies currently in:

  • Monday Cubs
  • Friday Cubs
  • Scouts



People who commit to regular participation in section activities, complete our essential training requirements and be there to support the leaders in the team to deliver for young people.


Currently, we have vacancies for Section Assistants in:

  • Beavers, both Cub Packs and Scouts


But I don't know much about Scouts

Don't worry about a lack of experience. We'll support you with an award-winning training scheme, online resources and cups of tea - every step of the way - to help you develop the skills required to deliver the best-possible Scouting for our young people!


Try it out!

Don't want to commit right away? No problem, you can ask about our 4-week Challenge that gives you a chance to see how it all works, before deciding.

We're back!

Once again, our young people are starting to meet up outdoors and take part in the activities they love.

With the proper precautions in place they've been hiking, tent-pitching, fire-lighting, exploring the local woods and taking part in a whole range of exciting activities at Scout Adventures, Fordell Firs.

Indoors too!

With proper precautions and procedures in place, we're now able to meet indoors. We prefer the great outdoors, but this is great because Scottish weather doesn't always co-operate with outdoor activities!

Things may not be completely normal, but we're getting there.
