As you may know, I’ve recently been advocating the efforts of the Staffordshire County Scouts and the energy the organisation devotes to ensuring that young people and adults can develop their #skillsforlife.
The 4th to the 8th of November represents the Scouts’ Trustees’ Week – an annual event that showcases the great work that trustees do and highlights opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
I’d like to join the organisation in thanking all its Trustees who volunteer their time across Staffordshire’s 121 Scout Groups and 12 Districts and contribute to the running of the Scout Groups. I’d also like to help generate awareness of the opportunities for people in the area to become trustees themselves.
Becoming a Scout Trustee
Scout Trustees provide support to the Local Group Manager to develop the Scouting provision within the local community, ensuring that the best quality of Scouting is delivered to young people in the local area. They also ensure compliance with relevant legislation and requirements of the Scout Association.
Becoming a Scout Trustee means:
1. You will help to support and develop local Scouting, allowing young people in the area to experience fun, friendship and everyday adventure.
2. You will put your existing skills and experience to good use.
3. It’s a great way to meet new people.
4. You will learn new skills that could help build your CV, or just add to your experience or confidence in certain areas.
5. Your work will make a difference to young people involved in Scouting locally.
