Young Leaders (14-17)

Young Leaders are Explorer Scouts who choose to also volunteer alongside the adult leaders of the group to support our Beaver, Cub and Scout sections. Often these are young people that have grown up with the Group and have now chosen to help the next generation.

Whilst being a great asset to the group young leaders can also use their volunteering time to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

In addition, The Scout Association provides a scheme which includes training and a set of modules and missions which can be achieved by Young Leaders. Once the scheme is completed young leaders earn their ESYL belt buckle. Not only that but they will have made a massive benefit to the Group and learnt great life skills along the way.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
