Young Leaders’ Unit
The Young Leaders’ Unit is a District support unit consisting of Explorer Scouts who choose to devote a large proportion of their time in Scouting to service in another 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 a Young Leaders’ Unit.
Young Leaders are still Explorer Scouts and are encouraged to take part in the Balanced Programme provided by their District.Young Leaders’ Scheme
The Young Leaders’ Scheme is an ongoing programme of training, designed to enable Young Leaders to work effectively in the Section that they choose.
The Young Leaders’ Scheme helps them 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.
