Young Leaders

Giving something back is something which makes you feel really good, and volunteering with a younger section (a Beaver Colony, a Cub Pack or a Scout Troop) is great fun too!

The Young Leaders' Scheme is an ongoing programme of training, designed to enable Young Leaders to work effectively in the Section that they choose to support.

Young people between the ages of 14 to 18 can become Young Leaders. They can support in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Sections. Young Leaders are still Explorer Scouts and are encouraged to take part in the District programme. They are also members of the District Young Leader Unit.


As part of the Young Leaders' Scheme there are four Missions to be completed alongside the training modules. These Missions are designed to allow Young leaders to put the learning from the Modules into practise. By doing so, they will gain in confidence and become an integral part of the leadership team within their Section and Group.
