Would you like the chance to go camping, climbing, potholing, lead community projects while transforming young people’s lives? As a adult volunteer you will do all of this and more, using your skills and learning new ones.

As a Scout Leader in Crawley District, you will plan and deliver a safe and exciting programme for young people aged 10 to 14, making sure every young person gets the chance to spend at least one night away each year.

At this time, we have insufficient capacity in our scout troops to provide continuous scouting to those coming up from Cubs unless more volunteers are found to help us reopen Scout troops closed through the pandemic. Groups initially requiring new scout leaders include 2nd Ifield, 4th Worth, 6th Crawley, 1st Northgate and 1st Langley Green.

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. A full training programme will support you as you get involved.

Scouting offers fun, friendship and life changing adventure to over 450,000 young people across the UK. But this is only made possible by our talented teams of volunteers.
