Volunteering as a Young Leader (14-18 year olds)

We warmly welcome young people to join our volunteer teams.  They may be DofE volunteers, those who have come up through Scouting or individuals who are looking to support their local community.

Young Leaders are aged between 14 and 18 who volunteer with Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts or Scouts.

They are key members of the leadership teams, involved in planning programmes, running activities and making sure the kids have a great time.

A full series of training modules are available to support the Young Leaders, totally optional apart from the important Module A which needs to be completed within 3 months of their start date.

As part of the Young Leaders’ Scheme there are also four missions to be completed alongside the 11 modules.

Young Leaders are automatically part of the Explorer Scout section (age 14-18yrs), and can get involved with Explorer Scout Units if they wish. The Units put on activities just for their age group. The time volunteered as a Young Leader counts towards the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
