Become a Volunteer

Becoming a Volunteer in Ryedale will improve your wellbeing, equip you with skills for the future, and help you make a positive impact on the lives of young people.

At Scouts we celebrate difference and welcome everyone.

Whatever your background, identity or ability, there’s a volunteer spot with your name on it.

Volunteering can be a brilliant way to boost your mental wellbeing. It’s a great feeling knowing you’re helping young people get skills for life, and you might even learn a lot about yourself along the way. 

Scouts can make you feel good in other ways too. We’ll guide you to an opportunity where you’ll: 

  • Make friends and meet people 
  • Try new things and challenge yourself 
  • Get outdoors and get stuck in 
  • Positively impact your community 
  • Create vital opportunities for young people 
  • Make memories that’ll last a lifetime 

If you can only occasionally help, that’s OK. Whether you’d like to be an activity planner, tea-maker or craft creator, we appreciate any time you can spare.
