Young Leaders’ Scheme 

The Young Leaders’ Scheme is just one of the exciting programme elements in the Explorer Scout section. All young 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.

Those who choose to be Young Leader can count their volunteering towards the Service Section of their Scouting and Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards.

For more info about becoming a Young Leader at 1st Holgate email our Young Leader Coordinator.

You can find out more about being a young leader on the Scout Association Website.
