Adult Volunteers


Mid Herts District, is a growing District, focused on providing fun and adventurous activities for young people, aged six upwards, across Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield and surrounding villages

We currently have ten Scout Groups, four Explorer Units and one Scout Network Unit and Scout Active Support Unit, over 750 young people are supported by over 150 adult volunteers.

Can you be part of our success?

Whether it’s one night a week, one hour a week or a couple of hours per month, be it in a uniformed leader’s role, or a more back of house support function, you can play a key role in helping us – and have a great time along the way.
You will receive full training and support to help you settle into your new role, and I can almost guarantee that within weeks you will start to wonder why you did not volunteer years ago.

There really is a role for everyone.

Lots of people state that they would like to give something back to their community – but they don’t know how.
Volunteering to help in Mid Herts is a perfect way. If you want to find out more about helping TMid Herts Scouts as an adult, please contact us and we will be in touch.

Below is a list of some of the roles we are always on the lookout for:

– Leaders

We need section leaders and assistant leaders across all age groups, its hugely rewarding, and in many cases you get to take part in many of the activities , in fact scouting offers over 200 challenging and adventurous activities to all of its members.

If you didn’t want the commitment of being a leader or assistant leader but still wanted to help in the youth sections, then you might like to consider becoming a sectional assistant or occasional helper.

– Support Roles

Committee members – to help with the management of the District or an individual group. The management committee (or Executive Committee as we call it) is a little like a school board of governors and plays a vital role in supporting the provision of Scouting.

Scouting – a great Adventure – don’t miss out – Contact us know to find out how you can help.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
