Adult Life Cycle
Does your NSO need more adult volunteers? Understanding and supporting volunteering is an essential characteristic of Scouting. On top of this, the adult’s volunteering experience needs to be catered to by preparing and implementing a strategy on what we call the Adult Life Cycle (recruitment, performance, decision for the future, recognition).
Volunteers in Scouting Toolkit
For Scouting to grow and develop it needs volunteers who have a wide range of skills and experience. Sometimes the vision of who can volunteer to support Scouting is too narrow, sometimes we are not clear what we expect from our volunteers and sometimes we are not aware what our volunteers expect from us.</p> <p>The Volunteers in Scouting Toolkit covers a series of topics to help National Scout Organizations to consider their approach to volunteering, explore what volunteering means in their country, determine their current situation, have a vision for the future and then make plans to achieve these goals.
