Young Leaders

img_0035

The Young Leaders' Scheme is just one of the exciting programme elements in the Explorer Scout section. All leaders in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Section who are between the ages of 14 and 18 must be members of an Explorer Scout Young Leaders' Unit. They are Explorer Scouts who choose to devote a large proportion of their time in Scouting to service in another section.

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.

Training current dates available here - www.tiny.cc/ylt.

All Young Leaders must complete module A within three months of starting, these are usually run within districts. Dates at link above.

The other modules B - J are run either over a weekend or local days/sessions. Dates at link above.

Young Leader Support

If you have any queries about young leaders please email Mike Baxter dofe@scouts-hants.org.uk or Ash Wilson explorers@scouts-hants.org.uk.
