Survey on Volunteering in Scouting and Guiding

Leadership flier April 2012 FINAL

As you know volunteering is one of the areas on which the European Regions of WAGGGS and WOSM are working during the current Triennium. As part of this work and also to follow up our participation in the European Year of Volunteering we have developed a survey to help the regions understand the volunteering that is taking place in Guiding and Scouting and the needs of our Guide and Scout volunteers.

Deadline extended: Ensuring the legacy of the European Year of Volunteering


The European Year of Volunteering 2011 (EYV 2011) is successfully over. However, although the EYV 2011 has ended, our work continues. We must ensure the lasting legacy of the Year – at all levels – and therefore European Committtees of WAGGGS and WOSM circulate this letter with purpose to share with you information about the main outcomes of the Year and inform you of the actions which the Regions are currently undertaking on volunteering, which, as you know, is one of our areas of joint work during this Triennium.
