Would you like the chance to go camping, climbing, potholing, lead community projects while transforming young people's lives? As a Section Leader or Assistant Section Leader you will do all of this and more, using your skills and learning new ones. As part of 1st Houghton Scout Group, you will be plan and deliver a safe and exciting programme for young people, making sure every young person gets the chance to spend at least one night away each year. You'll use your energy and creativity to help young people have fun, develop their potential and earn a wide range of badges and awards, including the prestigious Chief Scout Awards. Of course you won't have to do this alone a team of supporters, parents and the young people themselves will help you plan and deliver the programme. But it's your enthusiasm and sense of fun and adventure that will inspire them. Scouting offers fun, friendship and life changing adventure to over 450,000 young people across the UK. But this is only made possible by the talented teams of volunteers. They have opportunities in all 3 Sections - Beavers (6 - 8 years), Cubs (8 - 10.5 years) and Scouts (10.5 - 14 years).


Enthusiasm, an empathy with young people and a sense of humour are a must. But they can teach you the rest, support you all the way, and ensure you get the training and support you need.
