Adult Volunteers

Join Us at 1st Helmsley Scouts!

We’re always excited to welcome new volunteers to our scouting family. Whether you want to work directly with our young members, help maintain our Scout Hut, or lend your skills to managing our website and social media, there’s a rewarding role for you here.

Volunteering can be a brilliant way to boost your mental wellbeing. It’s a great feeling knowing you’re helping young people get skills for life, and you might even learn a lot about yourself along the way. 

Scouts can make you feel good in other ways too. While volunteering with our Group you’ll: 

  • Make friends and meet people 
  • Try new things and challenge yourself 
  • Get outdoors and get stuck in 
  • Positively impact your community 
  • Create vital opportunities for young people 
  • Make memories that’ll last a lifetime 

If you’re interested in joining our inclusive and diverse team or just want to learn more about how you can contribute, please drop us an email via the link below or message us on Facebook for a chat.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. Fill in the Adult Application Form: Email it to us to kickstart the process.
