Young Leaders

Young Leaders are Explorer Scouts who volunteer alongside adult leaders in a Beaver Colony, Cub Pack or Scout Troop.

A valuable asset to any leadership team, ESYLs play an active role in the section, bringing a range of fresh ideas, and acting as positive role models for the young people they work alongside.

If YOU are 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.
