Young Leader (14-18 years)

Explorer Scouts aged between 14 to 18 years can become Young Leaders. They can help in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout, and Scout Sections.

Young Leaders are still Explorer Scouts and are encouraged to take part in other Explorer Scout activities too.

Why do Explorer Scouts become Young Leaders?

Explorer Scouts become Young Leaders to:

  • Gain the knowledge, skills and confidence required to become an effective Leader
  • Further their own personal development
  • Work towards other Awards for example Duke of Edinburgh
  • Acquire the skills that are needed for the Adult Training Scheme
  • Have fun!
