What is a Young Leader?

Creating a programme for young people who want to give something back is a vital part of what we do. The Young Leader's Scheme is just one of the exciting programme elements in the explorer scout section.

Young Leaders are the young people leading from the front; every leader in every section who is aged between 14 and 18, belongs to a Young Leader Unit and are explorer scouts who choose to give a large proportion of their time in scouting to helping lead another section.

The scheme is ran by the district and aims to develop your leadership skills through practical, hands-on sessions with real young people.


If you've already completed Young Leader Training, please help us in the future by submitting your thoughts on our new scheme. All feedback is greatly valued!
