Why Volunteer?

ScoutsCymru volunteers change thousands of young peoples’ lives in Wales by enabling fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in our communities.

But we also have hundreds of young people on waiting lists who can only get involved with more adult volunteers like you.

Volunteering for ScoutsCymru is challenging, fun and immensely rewarding. You could enable a young person to undertake the adventure of a lifetime or simply put a smile on a young person’s face when they are having a tough day.

You will be offered award winning training and gain externally recognised skills. Scouting offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. A study found that over 90% of our volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been useful to their working or personal lives.
