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.
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. For more information visit the Scout website
