Our cubs section needs a new leader team to get it going after a break over lockdown. We need four volunteers. Seize the day and be one of them!
One of the roles is Section Leader, who brings the team together and also works with our Group Scout Leader.
As a team you’ll pick badges you want to work towards each term. Most weeks you’ll plan a fun and challenging game and one or two badge-related activities. Most terms you’ll be able to take your Cubs on a Group, District or County activity outside of the weekly meetings – or plan one yourself.
You’ll have lots of help from our other leaders, who are all volunteers like you.
Being a leader is a lot of fun. It is also the most important volunteer role in Scouting. If you are organised and would enjoy helping our cubs challenge themselves, learn by doing and have fun doing it, you can help make Scouting happen for our cubs section. They will be very happy to see you!
I have questions!
What about COVID?
We are planning a new programme of activities for the coming term that we can adjust as restrictions are stepped down or up. The national Scout Association has developed some accessible training on how to include COVID considerations when planning a programme.
I don’t know anything about scouting?
Nearly everybody in scouting is a volunteer, many of us new to it ourselves, and bringing diverse interests and experiences. What we have in common is a belief in scoutings’ purpose and values. There is lots of support and resources to help you, even if you’ve never been involved in scouting before.
I’m not sure if I’m cut out for it?
No superpowers are required. Being a leader is a lot of fun, and it is even more fun when you’ve helped plan the activities. Seize the moment and try it for a term or a few weeks, there’s no other way to find out!
