You look like a role model.

Wanted: Everyday heroes. Join today.

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer…  

We’ve already got one Chief Scout, and he’s brilliant. What we need now are smilers and inspirers, activity planners and Zoomers – all round team players to support over 1200 young people in Horsham. If you  have time, we have a wide range of roles and can find one to suit your skills, interests and availability. Training is available if needed. Some of our key current vacancies are outlined here.
The good news is you shape what you do and decide how much time you give. Scouts happens when a lot of us give a little (and no, you don’t have to be a Scout or outdoors expert to volunteer).

Three great reasons to volunteer: 

  • You’ll share your skills and experience with young people, while developing yourself
  • You’ll have fun and meet new people in your area
  • You’ll inspire a generation (and they’ll never forget it)

 What to expect:

  • A warm welcome
  • Flexibility to get involved in a way that works for you
  • Easy access to training and resources online
  • Plenty of support and a great team

Whether you join us to directly support young people, or behind the scenes, as a volunteer manager, treasurer or fundraiser, we’ll match you with a role that suits the skills you have to share and those you’d like to gain.

No two weeks are the same, but the impact you make is always great.

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.'
