Are you an adult? Do you want to develop young people, have fun and build new skills? Do you want Trumpington to have a local scouts group? Become an adult volunteer! Adults get as much from Scouting as our young people.
You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Maybe you like telling stories? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.
Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, ranging from leadership to running residential experiences and first aid, to being part of our governing committee.
No matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported. Nearly everybody in Scouting is a volunteer, so there is lots of support and resources to help you, even if you’ve never been involved in Scouting before. Our main planning cycle is at the beginning of each school term but we welcome new volunteers at any time.
Many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our youth members because they’ve seen firsthand how Scouting benefits young people and want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with your children and learn new skills.
Volunteers are always welcome at 1st Trumpington! Sometimes we also have specific vacancies, where we need a volunteer for a specific role. Check below for our current vacancies.
Can you boil water?
If you want to help young people gain confidence and skills, we need you to become a Scout Leader. 1st Trumpington Scouts depends on people like you! It’s the leaders who really make Scouting happen for our young members. No special skills are required. We have a great team and you’ll get lots of support. Whatever life experience you bring to the role is an added bonus. You’ll join either the Scouts, Cubs or Beavers sections. Each section meets most weeks during term time, with other activities from time to time organises activities at other times. We keep things relaxed and fun and always aim to have a few more leaders on the team than we necessarily need at the meetings each week. If you’re interested but not sure if it’s for you, consider this our invitation to you to come and try us out yourself for four weeks and find out what it’s like. It’s really a walk in the park – with 20 kids of course!

Yarn spinners and shaggy-dog tale tellers required!
We need you to tell our story and help our group thrive and grow. We need young people, parents, potential leaders, volunteers, and friends in Trumpington all to know about their local scout group, and how they can be a part of it. That’s why we need you to be our Communications Officer. If you’re good at reaching out to people you can make a big difference for us! You’ll get lots of support from the leaders and the rest of us on the executive committee. We need you to tell our story – so if you like telling stories and making a difference, get in touch!
