Kaiārahi, this is the special name given to adult Scouts, previously referred to as “Leaders”. Kaiārahi are here to guide youth through their time at Keas Our Kaiārahi (Leaders) are volunteers that are Police vetted, trained, and warranted by Scouts Aotearoa. More details can be found on the Scouts Aotearoa website. They also understand the Youth Card, their responsibilities, and how they should act around young people. As well as this, our Safe From Harm card is there to make sure they have resources to fall back on if they ever find themselves unsure of what to do There is always at least one adult Scout present who has a current First Aid Certificate. If parents or caregivers would like to help at sleepovers and camps, they are required to also be Police vetted. This process can be initiated by completing the volunteer signup form. Occasionally Kea and Cub meetings are held away from the Den, if this is the case, caregivers may need to take their Keas to the designated meeting point. For safety reasons, adult Scouts are unable to provide transport for youth unless they are accompanied by their caregiver. To ensure children and adults are safe, no youth is to be left alone with an adult. When dropping off your child or children, please stay until there are at least 2 adults present. Youth are not left alone with only one adult, if a youth needs to leave the activity for a reason and they will not remain in sight of the Kaiārahi, we will request that at least 2 adults accompany the youth.
