Take the 4 Week Challenge

Volunteer for just 4 weeks and be amazed at the difference you can make.

Week 1: See what we get up to.
Week 2: Start to help out a little more.
Week 3: Get a little more involved
Week 4: You'll know if scouting is for you.

We have a wide range of flexible roles either supporting young people or behind the scenes. Any help is truly amazing.

Why Volunteer?

There's numerous reasons to volunteer, just take a look at some of the reasons our adult team give up their time at 4th Washington.
  1. To learn some new skills - it's not just our young people who gain new skills from scouting. Some of our adults have learned outdoor skills like map reading and fire lighting, while others have learned how to edit a website and how to project plan a small event.
  2. To spend more time with your children - many of our adult volunteers are parents of members of beavers, cubs or scouts and by volunteering, they get to share some of the experiences our young people gain at scouts.
  3. To give a little back - some of our adults enjoyed scouting as a young person and have chosen to share some of the skills they learned with the scouts of today.
  4. It's great fun - all of our adult team have a great time, it's really rewarding to see the confidence of our young people grow throughout their scouting career, a little bit of support to reach the top of a climbing wall can go a long way for our young people!
  5. For the activities - it's a great chance to get outdoors, get active and to try some activities for yourself.
