How to Volunteer in Cub Scouting

Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family.  Getting everyone involved makes the experience more meaningful for your Cub Scout.  There is a place for every parent, legal guardian, or other caring adults who want to help.  Often the challenge is not knowing how to help.  Below are some helpful steps in how you can volunteer.

Helping

Being helpful is part of the Scout Law, a value we seek to instill in everyone.  The best way to help is not to wait until someone asks, but by providing assistance when you know someone needs it.

When offering to help consider the following: 

  • What things are you good at?  
  • What do you enjoy doing?
  • What hobbies or skills do enjoy?

Any leader or volunteer in your pack can tell you how you can help the group.  If you help by doing something you are good at you will find it rewarding and may lead you to becoming a volunteer.

Volunteering

Volunteering is another way you can get involved.  Being a volunteer in the BSA means you have registered as an adult and have gone through an approval process.

Registering as an adult in your Pack lets others know that you are willing to go beyond just helping others but willing to take on responsibilities in the Pack.  To serve in a volunteer position in Scouting requires an adult to register with the BSA. 
  1. Complete an adult application on-line.
  2. Complete Youth Protection Training.
  3. Complete the VITUS Training.
  4. The pack committee chair and chartered organization reviews and approves the application.

Not all volunteers work directly with youth.  Many serve in positions that support those who do.
