"True Venture exists to inspire and support children and young athletes by improving access to positive opportunities through sport so they can connect with and reach their potential"
We believe that children and youth athletes are not always given an equal opportunity, whether that be access to local facilities and clubs or access to compete and develop their athletic ability. The last few years have shown us how acute this issue can be with participation numbers dropping, energy costs putting our swimming pools at threat and competitions disappearing in certain regions.
We will support these issues by focusing on these activities:
My History with The Scouts
Over 100 years ago my great uncle Sir Charles Warren helped Baden-Powell to create the Scout movement. I truly believe spending more time outdoors, getting muddy and making things with your hands is integral to every child’s upbringing. Keep those muddy adventures coming. Who are the Scouts? We are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
What do Scouts do?
Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
What do volunteers do?
This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.
Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
