Young Leaders

Young Leaders are people aged between 14 and 18 who volunteer with Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts or Scouts.

They are key members of the leadership teams, involved in planning programmes, running activities and making sure the kids have a great time.

Time and again young people tell us that they think volunteering empowers them to make a difference to the world around them. They see a world in turmoil that they feel they can’t change, but through volunteering with organisations such as they Scouts, they have the opportunity to do something positive. They also gain essential skills for life by getting chance to plan, organise and run activities, including time management, teamwork and budgeting skills. It’s a win win situation!

A full series of training modules are available to support the Young Leaders, totally optional apart from the important Module A which needs to be completed within 3 months of their start date.

Young Leaders are automatically part of the Explorer Scout section, and can get involved with Explorer Scout Units which put on activities just for their age group. The time volunteered as a Young Leader counts towards the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
