In order to ensure that we continue to provide young people with a unique opportunity to grow and develop through outdoors-based learning programmes, we need you to join our team. There are many ways to volunteer, so choose one that suits and experience SCOUTS for yourself.
Volunteer as a Leader
Leaders often speak of how rewarding it is to volunteer with SCOUTS New Zealand. Many parents choose to become a Leader of a Kea Club, Cub Pack, Scout Troop, or Venturer Unit, and experience SCOUTS for themselves. They get the best of both worlds: spending time with their children and watching them grow, but also learning and challenging themselves as they progress through SCOUTS New Zealand's Leader Training scheme.

Volunteer as a Committee Member
Behind the scenes of all our Groups are committees of experienced and dedicated volunteers who act as a board. They help with the operational side of our Scout Groups, helping to ensure the delivery of our high-quality programmes for young people. This is an opportunity for business people to become involved with SCOUTS.

Volunteer as a Scouting Associate
SCOUTS New Zealand provides a volunteering opportunity to those who cannot commit on a regular basis in the form of Scouting Associates. You can assist at activities and events, like MudSlide Day or at one of our Adventure Schools. As a Scouting Associate you will be kept up-to-date on events in your community, and you can choose to help out when and where you want.

Volunteer as a Parent Helper
Not every adult feels as though they are cut out to be a leader, but we actively encourage parents to be involved in their child's experience at SCOUTS. Volunteering as a Parent Helper is as simple as providing transport to a camp, helping out at a fundraising event, or picking up a paint brush to renovate a hall. For those who just want to help out where they can, this is another great opportunity to contribute as a volunteer.
