ylLogoWhat is Young Leaders Scheme?

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



In Rotherfield we the promote and provide specific training to support our young leaders. This is formed in three parts:

Module A - Prepare for take-off!

This is run in district on a periodic basis. Normally termly but can also be on an adhoc basis.

Module A needs to be completed before Module B-K and before attendance on the county residential course.
