Adults in Scouting
One of the biggest myths about Scouting is that Groups are closing down due to a lack of young people wanting to become Members. Nothing could be further from the truth; Scouting in the UK is a growing Movement and we currently have 30,000 young people on our waiting lists simply because we do not have enough adults to help out.

Scouting goes far beyond being a progressive programme of activities designed to help the young develop holistically. It provides a foundation for great values to live by: helpfulness, friendship, cooperation; respect for self and for others; understanding and tolerance; integrity based on loyalty, honesty and trust; leadership, resourcefulness and courage in the face of difficulties.
What could be more important to nurturing the kind of society all want to live in?
This is why it matters profoundly and why we need even more support from volunteers, donors, employers and decision-makers like you. With just a little of your resources – time, talent, money, and goodwill – we can make a huge difference.
We welcome women and men of all ages, interests and backgrounds to support Scouting. There is no need to have been involved in Scouting or Guiding before; all that is required is a willingness to give some of your time and a positive attitude!
It’s a great way to make friends as our adult members have a lively social and activity programme and many people find that the free training they receive helps in both their professional and personal lives.
It’s not all outdoor adventure for our adult volunteers, they help across a range of subjects from drama and arts through to providing much needed organisational support, on logistics, training, mentoring, administration, marketing, fundraising and as charity trustees. The list of opportunities is almost endless.
In Mid-Devon we rely on almost 500 volunteers like you. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and the training we offer is tailored to each individual. You can train at your own pace and we will support and empower you to lead others. The volunteering opportunities that we offer are flexible so they fit with your individual circumstances.
