Adult Leaders

Empowering Youth, Strengthening Futures: Join the Adventure of Being a Leader Today

Are you looking for a meaningful way to give back to the community and positively impact the lives of young people? Do you have a passion for adventure and a desire to foster self-reliance, initiative, and responsibility in the next generation?

If you answered yes to these questions, then consider joining the team of adult leaders at Scouts Australia. As a Leader, you will have the opportunity to work closely with young people, helping to guide and shape their personal and professional growth.

There are many different roles available to adult volunteers, from leading a Joey Mob, Cub Scout Pack, Scout Troop, or Venturer Scout Unit, to becoming an Activity Leader in areas such as abseiling or water activities. Leaders are provided with comprehensive training and support, including access to a wide range of resources, program ideas, and training in youth leadership, program planning, safety, and other requirements.

In addition to making a direct and positive impact on the local community and the lives of young people, being a leader in Scouts Australia provides many personal benefits, including new friendships, improved physical and mental wellness, enhanced self-confidence, and opportunities for personal and professional growth.

So why wait? Take the first step towards making a difference and become a leader in Scouts Australia today!

Scouts Australia Institute of Training (SAIT) is a registered training organisation that provides adult leadership and personal development training, with the potential to earn nationally recognised qualifications.

Investigating Prospective Leaders

Scouting takes great care to ensure that all Adult Leaders are fit and proper persons and are suitable role models for young people.

A police check is conducted for every Leader applicant and supported by a periodically renewed Working with Children Card.

However, it is important that each applicant is also screened at a local level, i.e. by the existing leaders and committee members via their enquiries to local networks.
