Tasks for the whole team

  • Help Sections across the District work together. 

Allocated tasks

Help Section Teams run high-quality programmes  

  • Support all Sections to deliver projects where young people can have a positive impact in the community.
  • Help volunteers with any programme changes, such as new badges and activities, to help young people achieve Top Awards.
  • Encourage international trips and activities. 
  • Support volunteers to include nights away in their Section’s programme. 
  • Help volunteers gain their Nights Away Permits
  • Organise events for the District when Section Teams decide they’re needed.
  • Keep an eye out for any learning that’ll help Section Teams deliver a fantastic programme. The Volunteering Development Team can then give volunteers opportunities to develop and learn new skills. 

Facilitate programme networking opportunities 

  • Encourage Section Teams to share good practice across the District by creating opportunities to network. 

Help Section Teams access expert advice and support 

Make sure: 

  • There are skilled people to support Sections’ programmes (in areas that volunteers may not be experts in themselves).   
  • Sections can access adventurous activities, either through permit holders or external providers.
