Outline Task Lists for Volunteers

Below are concise list of tasks for volunteer roles in Woodcraft Folk Groups and Districts, necessary to function at what is currently considered best practice.

Volunteering

Woodcraft Folk runs on the passion and energy of thousands of volunteers. For over eighty-five years, we've been working with children and young people to develop their self-confidence and ability to act in society. Volunteers are right at the heart of this work and we're always looking for more, to strengthen our groups and create new ones.

Introducing Woodcraft

Note: this session plan is an earlier version of the bitesize session - putting the aims and principles into practice. While the bitesize session focuses more on planning your first sessions, you may want to compare the two if you are planning an introductory training session. 

A two hour training session giving a general introduction to the organisation, explaining its aims, roots and background.

Why volunteer with Woodcraft Folk?

Woodcraft Folk runs on the passion and energy of thousands of volunteers. With the support of regional and central resources, local Woodcraft groups decide their own programme and co-ordinate their own events and camps.
