Everyone is welcome to join Scouting, and Scouts Australia offers adults aged 18 years and over a host of rewarding opportunities to help make a difference in young people’s lives.

You’re never too old to join the adventurous life of Scouting, even if you haven’t been involved before.

Adult volunteers are the backbone of Scouting, who are enthusiastic and dedicated men and women from all walks of life who share a love of adventure and a desire to enrich young people’s lives.
