Why should I volunteer with Scouts?

 

 

Our adult volunteers get as much out of Scouting as our young people do.

As well as helping young people to enjoy the adventure of Scouting, you'll also have fun, make friends, develop new skills and have unforgettable experiences.

You will also develop your own skills and learn new ones. Volunteering with us will enhance your CV and allow you to pursue an interest in a specific hobby.

We are looking for volunteers, no matter the number of hours you can offer there will be a place for you here in 45th Dundee. Need some more help in deciding? The following is from a Blog on the Scouting Website.

1. There is always somebody to laugh at your terrible jokes. 

‘He tells awful jokes, but they are so bad that you can’t help but like them’- Elenya
