#GoodForYou

Activities that are good for everyone

We’ve put together some activities that are designed to help young people develop skills, boost their wellbeing, and connect with others. With activities and adventures like these, it’s no surprise that Scouts has been shown to be good for young people. But did you know that it’s good for volunteers too 

Volunteer with Scouts

When people like you play their part, it changes young people’s lives. But volunteering’s also about doing something that’s good for your health and happiness, good for developing skills, and good for making friends.
