When I was a youngster growing up in the late 50s early 60s there seemed to be a large number of adult volunteers willing to help out with youth organisations. I belonged to the Boy Scouts, The Boys Club and a youth club. My sister belonged to a youth club and some girly organisation. These organisations were run by adult members of the community, and were well attended. These volunteers carried out these often onerous duties in their spare time and without any financial recompense. When in later life my kids needed to go to these clubs I volunteered my services and helped with mini rugby and the local boys brigade. So have the days of the unpaid volunteer come to an end? I have noticed job adverts in my local paper advertising for paid youth workers so that youth clubs can be kept open. Has anyone else noticed this? Is the modern parent too busy working to pay the mortgage to help out?
