Become a leader, it’s not as scary as it sounds and its immensely rewarding. We all support each other as volunteers as a team. Here is a brief outline of expectations:
Leaders need to be able to lead a group of at least 6 children (independent of your own child) with use of the Scout Method.
Attend weekly meeting nights. Cover can be arranged if you need some time off.
Help set up & pack up for meetings, do attendance register, do badge sign offs.
Contribute to planning & plan/lead approximately 1-2 sessions per term.
Be an active part of the leader team for your section.
Contribute ideas & communicate using chosen methods (email etc)
Attend & help at some weekend events each term.
Complete initial leader training (Gilwell woggle) within 18months.
Support other leaders in your section and group.
Adhere to Scouting NZ health and safety and child & youth protection policies.
Pass a new Police Check and reference for a Scouting New Zealand volunteer.
Conform to Scouting New Zealand COVID19 requirements for a non-education organization:currently as of December 2021 this means you need to be double vaccinated to participate in any face to face meetings, events or camps.
Acceptance to become a leader requires agreement from all other leaders in the section(kea, cubs or scouts), the group leader and committee.
