Get involved – rediscover adventure!
Whether you are completely new to Scouting or you were a Scout yourself, you will probably enjoy sharing your child’s Scouting experience. Youth members also appreciate and admire their parent’s involvement.
Scouting is a great way for families to participate in new adventures and activities together – why not encourage older siblings, grandparents or other relatives to get involved as well?
Many parents become trained Leaders, but there are also plenty of other ways that parents can get involved or contribute to the Group without committing to a uniformed Leadership role.
Parents can help by:
- Joining the Group Committee
- Providing transport to facilities
- Organising fundraising activities for the Group
- Volunteering for duties such as Scout Hall set up or clean up
- Helping at working bees
- Organising a Group excursion to your workplace
- Offering your unique talents and skills for a Group theme night
Don’t be afraid to offer your practical support, or to ask the Leaders at your Group how you can contribute.
