Join Whether you’re a young person who wants a taste of adventure, a parent who’s looking for new interests for their child, an adult who wants to volunteer or help out in some way or an organisation wanting to work with us, we want to hear from you. Young people As a young person, Scouts is a place to have fun, make new friends, learn new skills and have the kind of adventures that you can’t have anywhere else. Depending on your age, young people can join Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts or Scout Network. If you’re under 14, you’ll need to get your parent or carer to register your interest in becoming a Scout. Volunteers Volunteering for The Scout Association is easy, fun, offers opportunities to get externally-recognised qualifications, and gives you the chance to have a real impact on the development of young people. How much time you give is up to you, and you don’t need any previous experience. We have a huge variety of roles to suit everyone, and whatever role you choose, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
