Young Leaders are part of the Explorer Scout Section, who choose to devote a large proportion of their time in Scouting to support and help in another section. Young Leaders are aged between 14 and 18 years old.
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.
The Young Leaders’ Scheme is made up of 11 modules:
Module A – Prepare to take off
Module B – Taking the Lead
Module C – That’s the way to do it
Module D – Kids behaving badly
Module E – Game on
Module F – Making Scouting accessible
Module G – Programme Plans
Module H – Programme Plans Plus
Module I – What did they say?
Module J – Awards and Badges
Module K – First Aid masterclass
To begin with Module A Badge is awarded after completion of Module A – Prepare for Take Off of the Young Leaders’ Scheme. This must be completed within three months of becoming a Young Leader.
