Volunteering

Become a Leader

Ask any of our volunteers and they’ll tell you, volunteering with Scouting is as rewarding to them as it is meaningful to the kids. Watching kids grow is one thing — leading them through the process is a whole new experience altogether.

Interested in volunteering to bring Scouting to the youth in our community? Find a unit near you and get in touch! Or contact Mawat District Vice-Chair Matt Nash at mattnash.bsa@gmail.com .

Roundtable Team Members Roundtable is a monthly meeting of Scouting volunteers.  At Roundtable leaders share knowledge and help each other solve problems.  It’s also a time for monthly fellowship amongst volunteers.

Durham is in need of a small team of volunteers who are willing to facilitate Roundtable.  Principally this means organizing the meeting and inviting Scouters to come and share their experience with the group.  If you would be interested in helping here, please contact District Commissioner Jeff Mixon at akula673@aol.com for more information.
Unit Commissioners Unit Commissioners are friends, representatives, doctors, teachers, and counselors to BSA units.  They are key liaisons between the District and our Scouts and Scouters in the field.  

Many Durham Scouting units currently do not have Unit Commissioners.  If you are an experienced Scouter that would like help ensure the success of Durham Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venture Crews, and Sea Scout Ships, please contact District Commissioner Jeff Mixon at akula673@aol.com for more information.
Activity Committee Members Activity Committee Members organize events for Scouts across Durham.  Great examples are the Mawat District Pinewood Derby, Cub Scout Twilight Camp, and service projects that impact our community.  The stronger the activities team, the more activities we can provides for Scouts in our community.
