Scout Network (18-25 years)

Welcome to Central Yorkshire Scout Network

You can be a Scout Network member if you are aged 18-25. Membership of Scout Network is free and you don’t have to be an adult volunteer/ leader in a Scout Group or District to be a member, but if you are, or would like to be, you can.

The Scout Network programme is self-led by the Network members – you decide what you do and when, and all activities and events are done on a pay as you go basis.

The Scout Network is supported and facilitated by the Assistant County Commissioner (Scout Network), Deputy ACC (Scout Network) and District Scout Network Commissioners.
