Recruiting former members

Former youth members make up 45% of our new volunteers, and show a great commitment to their role. Use young leaders effectively and keep in touch with former members, making them feel welcome to volunteer once they are 18.

Adult who have volunteered for scouting in the past would be more willing to rejoin that recruiting a member of public from scratch; particularly if their circumstances have changed. Keep in touch with former members and don’t be afraid to approach them further down the line.
