Cub Leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers – working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive, and accessible. Some lead the pack week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
