Young Leaders

Young Leaders

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.

Anyone who wishes to be a Young Leader, will have to complete the Young Leader’s Training, which is held at least twice a year in the District.

Young Leaders can assist in the Beaver, Cub and/or Scout Sections in any group in the District.
