If you're 14-18 you can become a young leader, assisting with Scouting in a Beaver Colony, Cub Pack or Scout Troop sharing some of the skills you've learnt.
If you are already a young leader - THANK-YOU for the contribution to Scouting you make in your local area!
As a young leader you can also go to Explorers, but even if you don't, you can still take part and get involved in Explorer Activities, including all the activities on the event pages of this website.
Training is provided for young leaders, normally within District. Factsheets and information about the various Young Leader training modules can be found here:
Kent Scouts also provides 2 weekends a year when we run all the young leaders training modules in 1 place. These can be found on the Kent Scouts events pages.
The young leaders have 10 modules and 4 missions to complete. Once they have completed the scheme they can be awarded a special Young Leaders Belt.
The Modules are as follows :
Module A - Prepare for take off (essentials and expectations)
Module B - Taking the lead
Module C - That's the way to do it!
Module D - Understanding behaviour
Module E - Game on!
Module F - Making Scouting accessible and inclusive
Module G - What is a high quality programme
Module H - Programme planning
Module I - What did they say?
Module J - Communicate it!
Module K - First aid masterclass
This is a resource that supports Young Leaders through the Scheme. It mirrors the content of 'Preparing to Lead' and has space to evidence all of the modules and missions in order to complete the scheme. This can be downloaded and used in full, or you can chose to use only a section at a time. You can find the Printer Friendly copy here.
