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.


All young leaders are provided with training through a modular scheme. They all recieve extensive support from the leadership team.

The Young Leader training modules can be downloaded below. Once you complete module A you can wear the young leaders badge.

Once you have completed all the training modules, you can start on the four young leaders missions. They can be viewed by clicking here . You will recieve and extra badge for each one - this is sewn onto each side of the young leaders badge.
Once you have completed all your training and all four of the missions, you are then awarded with the young leader belt buckle.
But that's not the end, the leadership team will continue to provide any support needed and look at any further training you might want to undertake. e.g First Aid
