Volunteer Manager, Harlesden / Group Scout Leader, 10th Willesden

We prepare young people with skills for life. But who supports the volunteers who make this happen? People like you!

You can inspire, motivate and plan ahead. You'll enjoy working with adults and young people in your local area and seeing the impact of your efforts. You'll be organised, diplomatic and know how to get the best out of people.

10th Willesden is a new Scout Group meeting on a Friday evening at St Matthew's Church Hall, St Mary's Road, Halesden NW10 4AU. The new group part of our expansion plan for Scouting in Brent, having opened four new scout groups in 2018 and seeing a 50% increase in our membership over two years.

Beaver Scouts (6-8 yo) has one volunteer leader and 15 members, and Cub Scouts (8-10½) two leaders and also 15 members.

Nationally The Scout Association has a membership in the UK approaching 600,000 individuals. Almost half a million young people participate in Scouting each week, supported by over 115,000 adult volunteers in numerous roles.

We provide fun, friendship and lifechanging adventure to young people from every background, giving them the chance to experience the outdoors, build their confidence, and to reach their full potential. As the UK’s largest co-educational youth movement, we help boys and girls to develop the skills and values they need to succeed in life.

At local Group level, Scouting is split into three sections: Beavers (6-8 years), Cubs (8-10 ½ years) and Scouts (10 ½-14 years). Groups also have an Executive Committee, comprising a Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, who oversee Group decisions.

Scout Groups are supported by our Deputy District Commissioner - Groups, and the wider volunteer team lead by the District Commissioner. We also are supported by a full-time Growth and Development Officer and a part-time Development Assistant.
