Skills For Life

‘Creating the strategy’
For volunteers

Each week, almost 200 young people develop skills for life while enjoying fun, friendship and adventure at our scout group.
To continue to grow and in order to prepare our group and our Young People better for the future, we’re creating a strategy.

The purpose of the strategy is to look at all we do, from the content we post on social media to the support that is given to volunteers.
From this review, we’ll create simple goals to help us improve. 
Everyone will be welcome to get involved with creating our plan.
Feedback from young people, parents, supporters and volunteers will be at the core of shaping our future.

The stages involved:
1 – Inform volunteers
2 – Ask volunteers for areas they feel would benefit from featuring in the strategy

4 – Starting the review
5 – Collating feedback
6 – Creating goals (simple goals for the next 5 years)
