Scouting isn't just about the children. It takes the time, energy, skills and enthusiasm of a community of adult volunteers to make it happen.
You may well have got a lot out of Scouting in your youth and are wanting to give something back or you may have a child in the group and simply want to have some quality time with them and their friends. So why not come join the fun?
You will be joining a group of like-minded, sociable people who are similarly enthusiastic about the ideals of Scouting. So, as well as developing an array of skills, you are bound to make new friends and generally have a great time.
Whatever skills you have and however much time you can afford to give there will be something you can do to make a positive impact. Here we've outlined some of the areas where we rely on the work of volunteers. We're always on the lookout for more helpers and we will ensure that you receive any necessary training and support.
So please don't hesitate. Come and get involved and help ensure that our children continue to receive the life-enhancing experiences that Scouting provides.
Leaders and Assistants
From occasional helpers to Assistants to Leaders there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the fun. Not sure if you've got what it takes? Why not start with helping out occasionally and see where it takes you?
Keen sailor, hillwalker, archer? This may be an opportunity for you to share your favourite pastime with young people and maybe even convey to one or two of them a passion which will become part of their lives forever.
Parent Support Group
The Parent Support Group (PSG) coordinates all of the supporting activities that enable 'front-line' Scouting to happen at 9th Maidenhead. From fundraising and maintaining the Scout Hut to publicity and recruiting Leaders and Helpers.
Getting The Jobs Done
Good at fund-raising? Got DIY skills? Good at building websites?! From time-to-time there are a range of tasks that need to be done to keep our Scout Group going. If you've got some skills and can contribute the occasional hour or two then your help will be greatly appreciated.
