Has anyone who has done there DofE award done scouts for volunteering? I was wondering whether you actually join the scouts for 3 months or you actually help out with the kiddies who are there?
Yeh it’s a case of you volunteer and help the kids there and the leaders with stuff.
Depending on your age scouts may not be the best maybe beavers or cubs just because it makes it easier if they are younger than you.
I presume you are already at scouts? If so, then there will be a local contact who can sort out the d of e award for you. They arrange the expedition and then you sort out your physical and skill sections. You can always do your volunteering within scouting by helping out with a younger section, again your scout leader can help you arrange this.
Also, I’m not sure how it works in scouts, but in Guides there is usually one intake per year for d of e ( but you can join Guides at any time) so you really need to discuss things with them. Good luck, I hope it works out.
