Scout Leader

Young People Regular - less than 6 months Carlton North VIC

About this opportunity

Carlton Scout Group is looking for Scout Leaders to join our current team. We have experienced a huge surge in interest post-covid lockdowns and are looking for more leaders in all Scout age groups.

As a Scout Leader, you will be trained to organise a program of age-appropriate adventurous activities for kids including Excursions, Games, and Practical Learning.

You will make the Scout Promise and be invested with a uniform and scarf as a member of the worldwide scout movement.

You will join a diverse team of adults, including youth and parents and will find friendship and community

You could find yourself on a canoe hike, cross-country skiing, ziplining, camping in the wilderness or sailing on the bay, as you pursue Scouts' Adventurous Activity training to deliver the same experiences to youth.

Carlton Scout Group has for more than 100 years taught young people skills for life.

Open to all girls and boys, we are committed to continuing a strong and proud tradition of inspiring our children to become conscientious and confident community members.

We are organised into the following age groups and are looking for more leaders in every group:

Joey Scouts - aged 5+, Cub Scouts - aged 8+, Scouts - aged 11+, Venturers - aged 14+.

We are fortunate to have a strong team of leaders and are an example of how a community and the Scouting movement can work together for our youth.
