Volunteer

Everything we do is only possible because of our team of amazing adult volunteers.

Maidstone West Scouts provides adventure and new skills to over 600 young people on a weekly basis. This is only possible due to our amazing team adult volunteers.

At Scouts we celebrate difference and welcome everyone.

Whatever your background, identity or ability, there’s a volunteer spot with your name on it!

Volunteering can be a brilliant way to boost your mental wellbeing. It’s a great feeling knowing you’re helping young people get skills for life, and you might even learn a lot about yourself along the way.

Two things matter in life: following your dreams and looking after your friends. That's what I love about Scouts.


Bear Grylls
Chief Scout

Being a scout has taught me so many life skills and I have made so many friends.

George
Explorer Scout

Scouting set me on the right path at a young age because I loved the outdoors and I loved adventure. 

It gave me the opportunity to discover new interests, explore new boundaries and build the confidence to achieve new goals.

Tim Peake
British Astronaut

Scouts can make you feel good in other ways too. We’ll guide you to an opportunity where you’ll:

  • Make friends and meet people
  • Try new things and challenge yourself
  • Get outdoors and get stuck in
  • Positively impact your community
  • Create vital opportunities for young people
  • Make memories that'll last a lifetime

If you can only occasionally help, that’s OK. Whether you’d like to be an activity planner, tea-maker or craft creator, we appreciate any time you can spare.

Discover What You Can Do

Whether you want to work with young people directly or help out behind the scenes, there's something for everyone at Scouts.
