Volunteer positions

Hawke Sea Scouts, like all scouting groups, is a volunteer and self funding based organisation. We encourage parents, grandparents and other family members to get involved with their children and assist where they can. Each troop is only as good as the people who step up to the challenge so choose a job you'd like to be involved in and come aboard!

The following are a list of volunteer roles needing your help:

  • Scout leaders
  • Cub leaders
  • Kea leaders
  • Sailors
  • Patrol/Safety Boat Skippers and Crew
  • Group Activities – Regattas, Group Camps, Ski Trip
  • Events co-ordinator
  • Fundraising / grant applications
  • Property maintenance and gardens
  • Pro-bono legal advisor

Even if you are not able to help out with a specific role we still need you. We depend upon participation from parents for helping with occassional sessions, working bees, fundraising, rostered cleaning and group functions.

There are also weekend activities requiring parental assistance such as regattas, camps and tramps.
