As an adult interested in the Scout movement there are many ways you can help. Being involved in Scouting is both hard work and fun. Over 100,000 adults are regularly involved in the UK as members of the Association, and an estimated one million more are involved in a less regular way. But more help is always needed – whatever your talents or interests we would welcome your involvement.
You can give as much or as little of your time as you choose. You could be a leader, an instructor, an administrator, a committee member or simply a supporter at events.
Every single adult who becomes involved helps to provide young people with exciting and challenging experiences. They then help them to use those experiences in their personal and social development. Leaders are encouraged to develop their own skills through formal and informal training experiences and sharing ideas with each other.
