Young Leaders


Young Leaders are aged between 14 and 18 and work alongside adult leaders in a Beaver Scout Colony, Cub Scout Pack or Scout Troop.

Young Leaders can come from a variety of backgrounds. They can be:

  • Former Scouts, who have turned 14 and been invested as Explorer Scouts.
  • Participants in external programmes such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award or members of other organisations like Girlguiding UK. Those who have not been invested as Explorer Scouts can only be Young Leaders for the duration of the volunteering element of the Award that they are working towards.
  • Young people who have joined the Explorer Scout section and chosen to participate in the Young Leaders’ Scheme as part of the section programme.

As Young Leaders you are a valuable resource for busy section leaders. The Young Leaders’ Scheme supports you in key areas to help you get the most out of working with younger sections. The scheme also helps you to develop as an Explorer Scout, enabling you to fulfil the service elements of various awards and to make a positive impact in your local community.
