Segways are an awesome activity!
The 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 Sections who are between the ages of 14 and 18 are members of a 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.

In our district, we run monthly YLT sessions. After each session there's some time put aside to socialise with other Explorer Scouts and enjoy some Pizza-type food.

Get Young Leader Training Dates from the HLS Scouts website.

On a Mission

As part of the Young Leaders' Scheme there are four missions to be completed alongside the eleven modules.

These missions are designed to allow the Young Leaders to put the learning from the Modules into practice. By doing so, they will gain in confidence and become an integral part of the leadership team within their Section and Group.

By supporting a section at 3rd Washington Scouts you can complete your Young Leader's Scheme missions. Our missions page contains some ideas to help you complete the four missions while you're having a great time 3rd Washington Scouts
