There is a world of simple pleasures, fun and stories shared around a campfire under the stars. A world of wonder and learning from all the outdoors can teach us. A world where young people can discover the best in themselves, and the best in each other. A world where kids can be kids, there is time to play, and life is never, ever boring.

It’s a world of fun, adventure, and pure joy…and it starts with Scouts.

Every year volunteers give their time to ensure that youth continue to have great Scouting adventures!

We are looking to expand our team, both in group support roles and directly facilitating the program with the youth. Our Volunteer "Scouters" (leaders) to facilitate youth-led weekly programming activities in local communities.

Do you:

Enjoy the outdoors?

Have the desire to learn new skills?

Like to make new friends?

Have administrative, leadership, fundraising or project management skills?

Want to spend quality time with children?



If you said yes to any of the above then you have found the right place!

Parents tell us their children benefit hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience. It can help develop your child’s social skills and independence, and give them access to some amazing and memorable opportunities. Many of our helpers and Scouters are parents of our youth members. They’ve seen first hand how Scouting benefits young people and they want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with their children and learn new skills.

Community members, students looking to volunteer, grandparents, aunts and uncles or older siblings are also welcome to wear the red shirt as a Scouter. You must be over the age of 14 (but young at heart!).

No matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported. Beyond having a terrific time, participating in Scouting adventures, it also offers the chance to build on your own personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. Many of our Volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives.

Scouting offers a world where youth can discover the best in themselves and the best in others. We provide youth with opportunities that enable them to be confident, self-reliant and an energetic global citizen — and we want them to have the time of their life doing so.

For more information about program and the volunteer roles available, check out our New Scouter Welcome Kit.

What is Leisure Buddies? Leisure Buddies is about creating friendships between people who may not otherwise have had the chance to meet. Contact between individuals in the community and persons with developmental disabilities seldom occurs spontaneously. The Leisure Buddy program facilitates friendships by pairing individuals in one-to-one relationships. A Leisure Buddy friendship helps to break down barriers to inclusion and provides opportunities for shared experience, laughter and support. What is an intellectual disability? A developmental disability, also referred to as an intellectual disability, is a term used to describe any condition that includes a lifelong impairment to a person's ability to learn or to adapt to their environment. People with a developmental disability do not necessarily have a recognizable condition. Some examples of diagnosed conditions are autism, Down Syndrome and Williams Syndrome. The degree of disability varies greatly from person to person. Developmental disabilities may or may not be accompanied by physical disabilities. Most individuals live in a group home or on their own with support and may have limited contact with the larger community. The Leisure Buddy program provides a safe and caring way for our individuals to become more independent, and to enjoy the benefits of a special friendship which extends beyond their family members and paid care providers. What type of commitment do I need to make to be a Leisure Buddy Companion? The most important part of the Leisure Buddy program is friendship. Buddies make contact with each other once a week by telephone. It is expected that one-to-one outings will happen twice per month.
Location: This varies depending on who your are matched with.

As a volunteer you will receive orientation and training, a custom volunteer shirt, and access to the entire event.

Volunteers are valued members of the Fools team and we are always happy to include anyone who wishes to contribute to making theatre in the region fun and accessible!

Volunteer positions include:

Muscle & Energy – Want a fun, healthy, free work out? Skip the gym and join our Tetris-loving dynamos! No matter the size, this is a group of people who can roll up their sleeves to help with load in and load out of our set before and after performances.

People Enthusiasts – Love talking to people and making them feel great? Our Front of House volunteers are just the team for you. From chatting about a mutual love theatre, to helping people find that little patch of grass the perfect size for their chair, blanket or dog, this team dedicated to making the audience experience extra Foolishly special before, during and after the performance.

Community Ambassadors – Want to volunteer during the daytime? We’re looking for an energetic poster posse to take neighbourhoods by storm days in advance of our community visits. As the face of the Fools, you will help spread the message through print and word of mouth that a Company of Fools’ production of Twelfth Night is coming to their park and soon.

Have other skills not listed here? We’d love to hear how else you might like to help ensure that our Torchlight Shakespeare season is smooth and Foolish!
