Young Leader Unit

All leaders in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Section who are between the ages of 14 and 18 must be members of a Young Leaders Unit. We tie the Young Leader programme into a special District Explorer Scout Young Leader Unit administered by the Young Leader Co-Ordinator, Derek Lawrence (email).

This is to ensure they receive the correct training and support.

If you are an existing Explorer wishing to become a Young Leader, you should email your name, address and Explorer Unit name to the Young Leader Co-ordinator and we’ll try and find a location for you - if you're not already an Explorer Scout in the District, use this form to leave your details and we'll get back to you soon.
