As Group Scout Leader you are responsible for supporting new adults through the welcome, application and induction process.
As soon as possible you should arrange to meet your new team member and discuss what they’d like to do. If they are interested in working with the young people in either the Beavers, Cubs or Scouts section in your group then you will need to discuss the different volunteering options available to them. To support your conversation the role comparison guide below will help you talk these options through.
