2016 Volunteer Opportunities in the UK

Up for the Adventure?
The UK Scout Activity Centres  are recruiting almost 100 Volunteer Activity Instructors to join their expanding international teams across the UK. Their volunteers are trained to deliver a variety of activity sessions – including climbing, kayaking, archery, teambuilding and camp craft – to the groups visiting our centres throughout the year, and will have the chance to live and work with volunteers from around the world, achieve recognised qualifications and gain experience at a busy outdoor activity centre.
They don’t ask for specific qualifications or experience; just bags of energy and enthusiasm, a passion for creating safe and exciting experiences for young people, and a willingness to be outdoors whatever the weather! All accommodation, food, uniform, and weekly pocket money are provided. You would be required to pay for your own return flights and visa for the UK
Interested Scouting members can email volunteering.sac@scouts.org.uk or  visit www.scouts.org.uk/sac for more information about the programme. See what our current volunteers have been getting up to on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/SACvolunteering .
