Being A Leader

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.
