We’re keen to expand to provide more exciting adventures to young people in and around Heath and Reach and Leighton Linslade. But we need more adults to do this.
Could you help?
If you’re interested in any of the roles below, or could help in other ways…
Working with 6-8 year olds.
Due to retirement we need to find a new adult to join our Beaver team.
Our Beaver programme is fun, messy, loud and packed with adventure – you’ll need to be be able to enjoy working with the team of Adults to deliver an exciting programmes, and making sure that the Young People are happy and enjoying themselves.
This role could be regular or just a couple of times a month. And it could involve just the weekly meetings, or getting inolved in weekend events. Make it whatever is convenient for you!
Working with 10-14 year olds.
Due to growth we need a new adult on our Scout team. You’ll need energy and creativity to be able to help our Scouts have fun, develop their potential and earn a wide range of awards.
This will involve working with our existing adults to deliver weekly programmes, but also occasional night-time and weekend activities.
Who knows where this might take us… climbing mountains, canoeing on the sea, visiting other countries, or camping under the stars. It’s all up for grabs.
Help keep everyone talking
Parent representatives provide an important link between the three Sections (Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts) and the management team.
They attend meetings, typically quarterly, and provide opinions on behalf of other parents (and the young people) about where we are going and what the needs are. For example is something too expensive, are we providing the right level of information, do our targets sound sensible, are we clashing with any other events in the community.
We need to find a manager who can help us keep everything running effectively.
Things are ticking over currently but we need someone with a bit of vision and pizzazz to help the Group continue to grow.
This will involve working with the adults to make sure everyone is happy and safe, and rules are followed. But also helping ensure we have goals, are a useful part of the community, and making sure we are delivering a great programme for the Young People.
We’re very lucky having our own building. However, it does occasionally need some maintenance to keep it going – a splash of paint or fixing a leaky gutter will help keep it going for another 100 years!
We’d welcome a member of the team to help keep on top of building management – identifying problems, ensuring everything is above board, and that we meet any regulations.
You don’t need to have any qualifications – we can help you get on top of the basics.
