Main aim of the charity
Scout Association Vision for 2023: By 2023 we will have prepared more young people with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme.
We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities.
How the employee got involved and why
I have been apart of Scouting for 16 years when I joined as a Beaver, I progressed through the system and when I left Scouts, I became a young leader with the Cub section. I am currently an assistant leader for 1st Laleham Cub Pack.
After enjoying many years being a Beaver, Cub and Scout, I decided I wanted to give back and ensure future kids can enjoy the same activities and learn skills in the same way I did.
What work does the employee do for charity?
Every Monday (during school term dates) I help run an hour and a half Cubs session as well as organise and participate in 2-3 weekend camps yearly.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
Winning would provide funds to either renovate our Scout Hut which we run our weekly sessions from due to wear and tear and mold, etc that is starting to become present. Alternatively the funds would go towards activities we run throughout the year or if it is a substantial sum I would organise a once in a lifetime camp/trip for the Cub Pack.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
I don't think winning would impact myself greatly as the work I do is mainly to ensure kids have the same opportunities I had, however, it would be nice validation that the work myself and the other leaders in our specific Pack and indeed across the world is valuable and life changing for future generations.
