January 20 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Grow Your Group is a series of interactive workshops, spread over three half days that will help you to grow your Scout Group by involving and recruiting more adults (and possibly more youth members) and so be more sustainable.

The workshop works best when your Group is well represented, with participants from all your Sections (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) together with members of your Executive Committee. Please try and have some core members attend all three Saturdays as the continuity adds to the success of the event.  However, we don’t want to deter people from attending if they cannot commit to all three.   Representation from the Group can include parents, Executive members, leaders, helpers and managers.

This is the first of three sessions;

Saturday 20th January 2018: 9.00- 1.00pm

Session 2         Ready steady recruit

A session that looks at how we can get ourselves into the right situation to help us recruit new adults.  We’ll also look at what might be preventing us from recruiting and how we can break down those barriers.

Session 3         Its’ a walk in the park. The 6 steps to recruitment

A lively fun session that looks at tried and tested methods of recruiting new adults.    We’ll look at the different steps and how they fit together as well as how to move forward if one of the steps doesn’t seem to work.

Session 4         We don’t need superheroes we just need you!

This lively session will look at what your member’s parents may think and why we need to work with them.

It will also look at how we can work with parents more often to really get them interested in Scouting

Session 5         Too busy to help…. Think again!

Get ready to think differently about Vacancies as we look at how we can write exciting vacancy cards and where we can advertise them. The sky really is the limit

If you found these sessions interesting and useful, please come back and register separately for the other sessions on 24FEB18 and 24MAR18

Leaders on these sessions will be Chris Nagle and Mark Guy.  Any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact any one of the team.
