We’re looking for volunteers to help deliver an exciting Squirrel programme across Spen Valley

Members of our TeamSquirrels will help plan, resource & deliver the Squirrels Programme using instructor-led, parent-led and young person led activities

The Person

You will be an enthusiastic sharer of skills and knowledge in a non-formal manner, which may often involve learning the skills before sharing them.

Core Tasks/Responsibilities

  • Running games and activities as part of weekly section meetings and other section events.
  • Assisting young people to achieve badges and awards.
  • Assisting with residential experiences for the section.
  • Assisting the section with taking part in a varied, exciting and safe programme of activities.

The Process

Every volunteer who applies will be required to undergo a DBS check, and a brief interview with the District Appointments Panel to ensure you know what you’ve agreed to undertake.

Whilst that’s going through the process, any Mandatory Training needs completing within 5 months of DBS being submitted.

Progression Opportunities

Once you have been in role for 6-9 months, we’ll have a chat with you to see what further training opportunities you wish to explore. Your prior experience, and how you would like to continue your Scouting journey, will be part of that discussion.
