The Assistant Cub Leader will work alongside the Cub Leader and Young Leaders to provide a balanced programme for 8-10 year olds.
Cubs are full of fun and enjoy an adventure. You will have the ability to communicate with the youngsters, both girls and boys. If you have your own work or hobbies experience you can bring to the group, that would be helpful.
The Scout Association has a formal training programme, some self training and some at an Academy environment. The courses give you opportunities to gain knowledge in First Aid, Mapping and many more scouting skills. You can also receive training for activities like kayaking, archery, rifles climbing etc, which will allow you to gain a permit to teach others.
There are modules that a volunteer will need to take over a period of 5 years.
The cubs meet on a Wednesday evening. We use the Mendlesham Community Centre as we are currently fundraising for a new HQ, which will be sited at Mendlesham Green. We use this facility for camping and outside activities.
The Scout Association is a world wide organisation. At Mendlesham Scout Group, we provide scouting for the ages of 6-18 over 4 sections. We are a voluntary group. The programmes that we provide across the 4 sections are aimed to develop the skills of the youngsters that can be used in adult life.
