Young Leaders' Scheme

The Young Leaders' Scheme is just one of the exciting programme elements in the Explorer Scout section and enables Explorer Scouts to devote some of their time in Scouting to service as a leader 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 fulfill the service elements of their awards.

If you're interested in becoming a Young Leader, please speak to your Explorer Scout Leader.

Below are the resources available to YLs including the training which is available to help them in their roles.
