4th Leamington St. Mark's Scout Group

4th Leamington St. Mark's Scout Group consists of three Sections, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, collectively called a Scout Group.  Each section is lead by volunteer leaders who organise and run fun and often exciting activities both in the Church Hall at St. Mark's and at other venues in the locality.

The aim of the Scout Association, at all levels, is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities. The method of achieving this aim is through the provision of an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training based on The Scout Promise and Law guided by adult leadership.

The Promise and Law

The Scouts are unique amongst youth movements in having a Promise and a Law which Members willingly accept as a guide to the standards of conduct required.

Group Scout Leader (GSL)

The GSL is responsible for the overall running of the group and is a uniformed leader.  He or she works with the section leaders to ensure the programmes are balanced and in line with guidance from the Scout Association and is also responsible for maintaining records for leaders and parents, including Disclosure and Barring Service ( DBS ) checks.  The GSL has regular contact with the Group Chairman, raises any issues leaders may have and makes requests for funds to be available when necessary.

The Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is headed by a chairman and comprises a number of volunteer office holders and parent representatives from each section. The Executive Committee is responsible for fund-raising and related activities. The GSL and should they desire, the section leaders attend the Exec meetings to report on their activities and make requests for funding as appropriate.

Beaver / Cub / Scout Leaders

Successful scouting depends on the quality, commitment and enthusiasm of its adult leaders – volunteers who freely give their time to help the development of young people. All Leaders are required to undertake training to equip them for their roles and responsibilities. The movement’s training programme has become recognised by professional trainers as one of the best of its kind.
