Turning 18

You've turned 18 and think that's the end of your Scouting journey. However, Scouting is a worldwide movement, with upwards of 38 million members across the world, so chances are wherever you go in the world, you won't be far from some kind of Scouting provision. There are plenty of options for you once you turn 18, some of which are listed below. No matter if you decide to move away from home for university, college, a job, and wish to stay involved in Scouting, we will help you as much as possible. Think of all the amazing opportunities Scouting has given you. Play your part in helping the next generation of Scouting participants.

Volunteer Roles in Scouting

There are so many different roles in Scouting to choose from, each of which utilises and develops different skills, abilities and offers countless opportunities to enhance these to suit you. The Scouts website has an online tool here which asks a few questions and suggests a role which might be suitable for you. Not sure? Get in touch with us.

Scout Network

This is the fifth and final section of Scouting designed for 18-25 year olds. Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves under the leadership of a District Scout Network Commissioner and sometimes with the support of a Programme Coordinator. All young adults, that are members of the association and are aged between 18 and 25 in Scouting are members of the Scout Network.

What next?

You need to complete an adult application form, which can be found here.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with Gordon. You are the leaders of the future and if you have enjoyed your time in Scouting, perhaps you'd like to give something back.
