    Hello all I would like some advice,

    I was in the movement from Beavers until leaving a few years ago. I would really like to get back into it. I am going to uni and understand I can join a student scout society, however would it be practicle/achievable to volunteer at my old lodge between semesters when I'm home as upon graduating I would ideally like to be a full leader at my old lodge upon graduation.

    Many thanks for any advice given.

    Why would i get a heap of abuse? Is it a stupid question or is it just something people do on here?

    You'll need to ask them directly. It's possible they have enough Scout leaders already so don't really need you. It's very likely they only hold meetings at term time, so depending on your semester dates you might only be there for a couple of meetings - they might be able to use you for planning or scout camps or hikes etc, but it depends what the group has planned. You will need a DBS check (the new CRB) which will take weeks to come through, so if you start the process now you might not be able to start this summer anyway.
