We’re seeking people with a sense of adventure who want to work with young people (aged 10.5-14yrs) in your community, make friends and gain new skills at the same time!

If this sounds like you, then this could be the volunteering opportunity you have been looking for!

73rd Reading Scout Group in Palmer Park is looking for help running its exciting Scout programme.

The group meets once a week on a Wednesday 7.30-9pm at the Park Church.

The leadership team are volunteer positions and primarily involve helping to run the exciting activities alongside the youth. You could help with these activities! From abseiling to zorbing – we do it all!

We can offer you a free DBS check, free training, masses of career skills, and a great chance to improve your CV. There’s also plenty of support if you’re wanting to help but aren’t completely confident of your skills. The most important part is that it’s fun and incredibly rewarding.
