Latest Scouting Volunteering News & Opportunities in Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes Scouts Newsletter #BePrepared #SkillsforLife

Welcome! to the August 2021 Edition of the Volunteering news and opportunities.

If you are wondering why you are receiving this email, it's beause you have a child on one of our waiting lists across Milton Keynes, for Scouting.

One of the ways you can help your child get into Scouting is to volunteer.

Now, that doesn't mean it has to be the same 2 hour slot every week running activities for the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We also have a variety of non-youth facing roles, such as Treasurers, Secretaries and Chairs. The all important trustee roles that are essential to ensuring good quality scouting happens, and raises funds for exciting things.

So please consider looking at the roles below, and asking yourselves, friends and relatives whether they could give us some of their time, which will help us offer scouting to more young people across Milton Keynes, including your child.

So without further ado......

It's been a busy month as we're collecting the need from our Groups around Milton Keynes, as well as looking at what the District Team needs in order to improve support of the  Groups and the 400+ adult volunteers that make up Scouting in Milton Keynes.

Some fantastic opportunities to learn new skills, and share that learning with others this month as we look to increase our training capability, alongside much needed programme teams who deliver scouting every week to 1500 young people.

Have a look at the opportunities below, and if something piques your curiosity, or you want to have a conversation about a role, please get in touch (waitinglist@mkscouts.org) or you can register your interest on the form at the bottom of the opportunity.

We really hope you'll consider joining out volunteers across Milton Keynes and having some fun yourself along the way.

Kind Regards,


Stuart Ball
