Volunteer Recruitment Workshops

Details of sessions being organised by our Regional Services Team for Section Leaders and Group Scout Leaders.

As we plan for the return of face-to-face Scouting the Regional Services Team have put together an online workshop to support volunteer recruitment. The workshop is designed to help Group Scout Leaders and Section Leaders.

The Volunteer Recruitment Workshop focuses on recruiting parents into programme and non-programme roles as new and existing youth members return.

The interactive workshop takes place on Zoom on a number of dates through March and April, it is aimed at helping all Group Scout Leaders and Section Leaders to recruit new adult volunteers. So whether it’s moving the parents that have helped in the background on Zoom, from the virtual world into the room or re-engaging families you have lost contact with this is the workshop for you.

The workshop will cover the following areas, thinking here and now, for socially distanced and digital programme delivery:

  • Socially distanced parent/carer engagement and how to make the most of it:
  • Using family rotas online and in bubbles
  • Welcoming new volunteers to the team
  • How to ask for help and promoting vacancies
  • The Four Week Challenge
  • Recruiting to non-uniformed roles

Details of the workshops and dates can be found here the workshops are free but you do need to pre-register on Zoom to attend. Numbers are limited for each workshop but there are plenty of dates to choose from.

If you have any questions please contact the Deputy County Commissioner (Perception and Growth), Jane Warden.
