Using schools to recruit young people

As you might expect, your local school is a great place to recruit young people into your group whether you’re opening a brand new section or just want to fill a few vacancies in your current sections. You might want to use a school visit to invite young people to an open event you’re holding.  

Watch the video below to find out more about delivering your own school assembly.


School assemblies can be daunting but are actually quite simple if you follow some simple steps. We’ve created a session plan and other resources to help you.

If you’re unsure about delivering an assembly we’ve made the video below that can be sent directly to schools for them to play to their young people. You will also need to send the “school assembly video guide” which is downloadable below (please make sure you read it as well!)
