Are you interested in helping young people learn new skills, programme planning, events, helping volunteers come together to share ideas or helping young people earn top awards and badges? Then the Programme Team may be the place for you!

You can see what the team does below. As a member of the Programme Team you would only take on a small portion of the tasks that interest you. If any part of it interests you or you’d like to know more, please get in touch.


The District Programme Team helps every section in the District run a safe, enjoyable and high-quality programme. To help do this, they bring Section Team volunteers together with activity experts.

Team Tasks

Help Section Teams run quality programmes  
  • Support all Sections to deliver projects where all 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, and make sure they’re accessible to all young people.
  • 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 by making 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.
