The Youth Forum is a group of young people representing our each of our groups and units, who work together to improve scouting in our district.
Activities undertaken within the forum may include:
- ensuring the views of young people within our groups are represented at a district level
- contributing to discussions and decisions relating to current and futures activities within the district
- working together to solve common issues within the district
- supporting the planning and delivery of district events for groups
- developing personal leadership, problem solving and communication skills to support the work of the forum.
We are currently developing the forum, starting with a Scout Section representative from each group, an Explorer Scout representative, a Young Leader representative and Scout Top Award/DofE representative. The intention is to extend this to Cub Section representatives next year and Beaver Section representatives the year after.
