What is a Young Leader?

The Young Leaders' Scheme helps Explorer Scouts to develop and grow as individuals. It allows them to make a valuable contribution to their community and give service to others. The scheme also helps them fulfil the service elements of their awards.

Module A Badge

The Young Leader's Module A Badge is awarded after completion of Module A - Prepare for Take Off of the Young Leaders' Scheme. This must be completed within three months of becoming a Young Leader.

Often Young Leaders want to return to help out at their old Scout Troop

This is fine, but we recommend that Young Leaders should not return to the Troop until at least six months have passed since their departure.

This will allow the older Scouts to get used to their new roles in the Troop, and ensure that the Young Leader does not simply consider themself to be an older Scout but understands they are now part of the Leadership team.
